Crime Graphics - CitizenRIMS
CitizenRIMS GraphicThe Town launched CitizenRIMS on July 1, 2013. CitizenRIMS provides interested users detailed information about police activity. Visitors to CitizenRIMS can view a map of all of the incidents to which the Atherton Police Department has responded.
It offers a detailed view and allows users to filter incidents by date ranges and incident types.
In addition to routine incidents, CitizenRIMS shows recent criminal activity and information about arrested persons, missing persons, and stolen vehicles. The site will also provide a list of people for whom the Department holds arrest warrants.
CitizenRIMS includes a feature that allows users to receive a daily email summarizing all of the incidents and listing all of the recently approved crime reports in Atherton.
