Interesting interactive map put together by AZCentral.com...

MCSO sex-crime cases.

Strange how there are pockets in parts of the Valley while other areas have no reports at all.

Is it that those parts of the valley have no reports or were they handled by other police departments like Phoenix PD, Tempe, Mesa, etc?

Went back to re-read what it said and it looks like there are 400 cases that came about due to an audit, and these are the ones mapped. There are a lot more Valley wide I'm sure, but these are the ones that had deficiencies. Still odd that there are pockets of deficiencies and that they are all in the far suburbs.

That's what it looks like - there are cities that contract with MCSO for enforcement and unincorporated county lands where MCSO is the enforcement agency

This appears to be a review of cases that MCSO handled which was brought to attention after claims from El Mirage that MCSO was botching investigations which led to them cancelling their contract in 2007

http://www.azcentral.com/news/articl...mes-snafu.html

As this was specific to those cases from that time frame you'll only see hits in areas that MCSO covered in that area - which isn't most of the metro

Well, according to that map, the are no sexual deviants in my neighborhood

I like to use SpotCrime Crime Map, it will show you all the crimes committed in whatever reigon you select. I actually have it set up so they automatically e-mail me all the crimes that are committed in like a half mile radius around my house...I think it's a pretty worthwhile service (free too!).

That's a great tool but don't let it lull you into a sense of false security. Criminals, like everyone else, can travel and a bad guy that isn't here today - can be here tomorrow.

LOL, great advice, but I work in Law Enforcement, definitely no false sense of security here.

I don't get it. What is this a map of really? They don't say it is a map of sex crimes. Instead they say MCSO audited 500 sex crimes and found deficiencies in 400 of them. What do they mean by that? Deficient in what way?

I think this is just a map of some of the 400 cases that were deemed deficient.

What it means is that MCSO and County Attorney were so busy chasing down landscapers and busboys and harassing their political foes that they let hundreds of sex crimes cases go uninvestigated and unprosecuted.
