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.
