Hi,
While ago I came across a crime map that provided a visual comparison of crime rates in different areas. The highest crime areas were in red. For some reason, I can't seem to find it again. It was not just for Atlanta- I was able to look up areas in other US cities as well. Anyone know what I'm
referring to and could you direct me to the website, please? I've looked at
a couple other crime maps but they're not very
helpful as they don't tend to show one area in relation to another. I could read that a particular area has a certain number of burglaries etc but it's hard to tell if this is a high rate, especially compared to other neighborhoods in Atlanta. I will be relocating to Atlanta and I really want to live in the city but I want to make sure to do my research as to what's safe and what's not. I'm looking at areas like Candler Park, Morningside, Virginia Highlands, Druid Hills and Decatur. I know these are desireable areas but are they actually significantly safer than other not quite so "hot" neighborhoods? One of my reasons for wanting to live in one of the more established, expensive areas is because I'm assuming they are some of the safest within the city (ITP). Are there ITP areas other than the "hot", expensive areas that are just as safe (but maybe cheaper)? Sorry about the two part question.
Thanks!

I didn't think it was that one because it looks different now but maybe I had it on different settings before? Is there a way to get it to show more than just one day?

For the city of Atlanta, go to: APD Find My Zone and click on the zone of interest. Then go to the crime map on that page and click the crimes of interest and a date range.

You are most welcome.

Sorry, I don't know the methodology behind it. I only knew it was there.
