Heard about spotcrime.com on the local Arizona news this evening. Claims to be "The most comprehensive online source of crime information." It uses google maps and plots crime data as it's received. Pretty cool actually but I'm not sure how comprehensive (or how to prove) it is, or how it receives data. Would like to see a "About Us" page on their site too.

It's not comprehensive at all, in my opinion. I just checked out my area, and it is concentrated on the downtown area. They have a lot of crimes there, but nothing in areas where I know crimes have occurred, so there are definitely limits. I'll stick with the local station's website. They have a tie-in where you can type in an address and see all the crimes that have occurred recently.
