Track neighborhood crimes with Crime Mapper

Have you ever wondered what crimes are happening in the neighborhood around your home?

Crime Mapper is an online crime statistic database that shows the type of crime or incidents on a map with statistics.

The application is quite simple to use. Go to the Crime Mapper website and enter the address or intersection, and click the Search button, and select the address or intersection from the list.

A list of crime types, statistics, and maps will appear. The statistics are for the incidents within the one-half mile radius of the address or intersection entered on the home page.

A link to Crime Mapper is available at the Ardenwald.org Resource Links page under Milwaukie Websites and Portland Websites.

The first Ardenwald Johnson Creek Neighborhood Association welcome brochure was presented at the Feb. 14 neighborhood meeting.

A welcome narrative briefly talks about the neighborhood, Ardenwald school, parks, meetings, current issues, and Ardenwald community events.

A map of the neighborhood streets also points out the parks and the boundaries between Portland and Milwaukie, and also between Multnomah and Clackamas counties.

The brochure is available for download at the Ardenwald.org About AJC page by clicking on the “Download Neighborhood Brochure” link.
