10TV published a story on Ohio State's Community Crime Map, which was initially launched in March 2022.
The 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 alert
