York citizens can view a map and grid with crime in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity and submit an anonymous tip about a crime directly to the police department. Making our City safer requires a partnership between the community and its public servants. By providing up to date crime information it is our hope that the partnership will grow and foster a safer City for everyone.
