The benefit of a crime mapping app helps law enforcement agencies analyze and correlate data sources to create a detail of crime incidents and related factors within a community or other geographical area. The app also helps people to be aware of crimes and their locations. Concern: The crime mapping app might not have been widely used for many areas and might be limited or unavailable for some courtiers.
