Map offers snapshot of local crime

Beginning today, you will have a better idea of what type of crimes are being committed in Dalton and where they occur.

The Daily Citizen is debuting a crime map on page 8A of the newspaper. The map is expected to run daily and should appear on the weather page. The newspaper will publish a running roundup of seven days worth of crimes.

The newspaper’s map will show crimes in 12 categories: aggravated assault, assault — other, burglary — commercial, burglary — residential, burglary from motor vehicle, drugs/narcotics violation, fraud, theft, theft — other, robbery— commercial, robbery — individual and vandalism.

The crimes listed are only in the city of Dalton. Not all crimes are listed because the police department does not send all offenses to the mapping company. The full crime map can be found at www.daltonpdblog.org by clicking on “View Dalton Crime Maps” on the right-hand side of the page.
