Off-Campus Community Crime Map (Columbus)

The below Community Crime Map consists of statistics from the Columbus Division of Police (CPD) and shows off-campus crime reports. Ohio State has preprogrammed the map to a one-mile radius to include the crime reports from the most recent 7-day period. The default crime categories are pre-determined by Lexis Nexis. Additional features available include the ability to:

  • Turn on additional crime categories
  • Access months or years of data
  • See heat maps and trends including time of day
  • Sign up for crime alerts (daily, weekly or monthly)
  • Enter your own, personal home address to set up tailored alerts

On-campus crimes are not shown on the off-campus map but can be accessed via the above daily crime log. To see How to Use the Community Crime Map, view the video (right) or click here for a larger version.
