Champaign crime reports available on interactive online map

I wrote about it at the beginning of August, but Champaign crime reports are now live on

From a Champaign police press release today:

The Champaign Police Department announces a new partnership with CrimeReports. (Creators of the National Crime Map, at Citizens will now have the ability to view reported Champaign crimes via the web and/or iPhone app. In addition, citizens can sign up to receive a crime alert when a crime is reported in an area they are interested in or if a registered sex offender moves into their neighborhood.

For the record, that mobile app is not available for Android phones. I checked on my Android phone.

And the service isn't free; it's costing the city $199 per month, which is covered for 12 months by a state grant.
