New Website Gives Easiest Look Yet At Crimes By Neighborhood - A city worker of Philadelphia has developed a website that lets users pick boundaries and see a breakdown of illegal activity in the area. Creator David Walk, said, “There are so many different crimes. I thought it’d be good if people could easily find crimes in their area. The ultimate vision with this is to allow users to select the region they want to know about and get a text or email alert weekly/monthly of all the new crimes in that area. It’ll take some time to get there, but I think the app really becomes useful at that point.”
