Phoenix Crime Statistics Are Interactive

In trying to answer a question posed to me at an Open House yesterday, I found out that the Phoenix Police Department has an interactive website where you can look up crime statistics by choosing a location on a map.

For many buyers, being able to see this data will give them a great sense of control over their potential home purchase.

My only criticism of the Phoenix Police Department's crime stats website is that it's a little hard to figure out where on their site to click to get to the crime stats. Here's a picture so readers will know where to go:

Visitors looking for the interactive crime stats maps should click on the item on the right called Interactive Crime Statistics. The link's purple in my picture above. Maybe it's me but I thought the link was a little buried in a text-dense page.

For some other useful links, see my "For Buyers" web page.
