Want to know more about crime in your neighborhood. The State Police is trying to help. The New Jersey State Police Uniform Crime Reporting Unit has just taken a significant step forward in reporting crime throughout the state. A link was placed on the public web site that connects users to very recent and comparative crime data for municipalities and counties. The data is updated every week, or as often as municipalities provide fresh numbers.
The data on the web site is unverified, and published as it is received from the sending municipalities. Consequently, the data may later be revised or otherwise altered in the State Police’s annual Crime in New Jersey report, which will continue to be made public in the fall of every year.
The new data can be viewed at http://www.njsp.org/info/ucr_currentdata.html
