Welcome to the crime mapping program at Washington College!
Crime mapping is a pro-active tool that helps law enforcement to allocate patrol and specialized expertise in their own communities as well as across traditional political boundaries. Washington College's Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Geographic Information Systems Program (GIS) are working under the sponsorship of the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention to maximize the use of crime mapping across the state of Maryland.
Washington College's Department of Sociology and Anthropology was notified on April 8, 2008 that it received a grant award of $100,000 under the Maryland Crime Mapping and Analysis Program, a part of the State of Maryland's Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention. Read more . . .
