Police Annual Report

​The Village of Lincolnwood Police Department creates an annual report to
share with residents, Village staff, and the Village Board. The report
outlines the achievements by the Police Department while also providing
crime statistics. In order to better serve the residents, the Geographic
Information System (GIS) Department worked with the Police Department
to create maps to display the crime data visually by Police Beat. This
creates more transparency and allows the Police Department to better
assess the crime locations. In addition to providing visuals, the GIS
can also provide spatial analysis which is important when trying to
locate patterns of criminal activity.
