New Birmingham crime mapping tool launched

The Birmingham Police Department has launched a new online crime mapping tool that allows citizens to review incidents happening in the city, replacing its previous system Crimedar.

The new system, which is available at, is updated weekly and displays important information including the date and time, general location, type of crime and a brief description of incidents to which officers responded.

The new crime map was developed by the city of Birmingham’s IT & Media Specialist, Jamil Kim, and will be maintained by the police department and communications team. Incidents are displayed with map icons to help residents visualize where incidents have taken place, and are also available in list view.

“We want this information readily available to ensure residents and the media have accurate, timely information about incidents in Birmingham,” said Birmingham Police Chief Scott Grewe. “Rather than directing the community to an outside service, we now have the map housed within our own website for ease of use and one convenient location for all police information.”
