The Elk Grove Police Department partners with Crime Reports. This gives a more detailed list of crimes than the daily watch summaries which only list a fraction of the overall crimes in the city. Using Crime Reports you can sign up for alerts if you choose or just view the website.
You can enter in an address or allow the map to use your current location. It shows all the incidents in the city on the map. You can click on it to get more information on the incident. Below is a screen shot of the City. The incidents shown are from the dates July 17-31. One of the useful tools is that you can see where the registered sex offenders are in the city. All the red and white triangles you see on the map are registered sex offenders. You can click on each icon to see the name and address of the person. There are restrictions on where they can go and what they can do. The different colored areas on the map represent the different “beats” or districts in the city used by the Elk Grove Police Department.
