"It's been very informative. When you're looking at the map from week to week, it's incredible how much it changes," said RCMP crime analyst Chantale Vahey. "We're really able to target our enforcement based on what we're seeing on the map."
Types of crime shown are theft from vehicles, theft of vehicles, break and enters, theft over and under $5,000, mischief and missing persons reports.
Over the past 14 days, Fort Saskatchewan RCMP have dealt with seven mischief reports, three break and enters, eight thefts from a motor vehicle, eight thefts over/under $5000 and five thefts of motor vehicles.
"It's only 24 hours behind, not several weeks or last month, so we're able to say today here's what we're going to do based on yesterday," said Vahey.
The project was funded through the Government of Alberta and the RCMP's $10 million rural crime strategy that was announced earlier this year.
