How many car burglaries have happened in my neighborhood? Where have the DWI arrests happened in the last month? What area of town has the highest concentration of traffic accidents?
All of these questions and many others can now be answered using NBPD’s online crime mapping service: RAIDS Online. This interactive mapping program is updated daily and allows users to access NBPD’s database of crime reports in order to see basic information about where and when crimes occur in the City of New Braunfels.
Simply log on to RAIDS Onlineand then enter an address (to center on the city of New Braunfels, use: 400 Main Plaza New Braunfels TX 78130). Then, using the menus on the left side of the screen, you can select the date range you’d like to search and what type of crimes you’d like to see.
Once the map has populated you can then select individual cases to get more information, including the NBPD case number associated with that crime or incident. Remember, the map only shows incidents where a police report has been made.
