Dutch Crime on Google Maps
The Dutch city of Utrecht has its very own crime map.
Stopdecriminaliteit.nl. uses Google Maps to show the latest incidents of crime in the Dutch town and surrounding areas. It is possible to search the map by postcode or by type of crime. For reasons of privacy, however, crimes are never plotted to the exact address on the map.
As well as plotting crimes in Utrecht the site also gives general advice on measures that you can be taken to make your house more secure against burglary.
