The public can view a map and grid containing all reported crimes in a user-specified area, be it an individual neighborhood or the larger community. Users may register to receive alerts detailing the most recent reported crimes, and may submit anonymous tips about crime directly to the police department. Community Crime Map automatically syncs with Battle Ground Police Department’s records system to keep reported crime updated online. The department encourages the community to use the service and to always report crimes and any suspected criminal activity.
