New Rochelle has quietly switched its crime map back on after a much publicized incident last March where the Mayor expressed shock the his police department had endorsed a web service that provided residents detailed information about crime in their neighborhoods.
There has been no announcement but Talk of the Sound has been monitoring New Rochelle crime data on crimemapping.com since December when the company announced on its Facebook page that the New Rochelle PD was live on its system. The data is a highly sanitized view of crime data and dramatically understates the level of activity in New Rochelle.
Talk of the Sound has partnered with SpotCrime.com for almost a year and publishes all crime data. In a sample period of one week, the City reported 15 incidents compared to over 250 in SpotCrime.
