In May, 2010, the City of Shawnee entered into an agreement with Bair Software to provide Shawnee crime data to the public using Google Maps' well known, intuitive mapping interface.
Raids Online is located on the right hand side of the Police Department's home page, citizens can view information on crime reports made in Shawnee since June, 2002. The crime type, street-level address, address name (when appropriate), date and time are displayed for the users. The information can be viewed in a variety of formats and sorted on different criteria.
Data is uploaded several times a week. The crimes included on the map are aggravated assault, arson, burglary, homicide, larceny, motor vehicle theft, robbery, sexual assault and other reports. Currently, there are over 5,000 reports uploaded to the site. Citizens can join "Citizens On Patrol" to report anonymous TIPS to the police department and can also sign up for crime alerts on this site. Anyone with questions or comments is welcome to call the Crime Analysis Unit at (913) 742-6815.
