RAIDs Online Crime Map
A public crime map, which connects law enforcement with the community was designed to reduce crime and improve public safety. RAIDS online software allows you to view and filter crime data in an interactive map and analytics dashboard to become better informed about crime activity in a particular area.
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
Lakewood Police work closely with the business community to prevent crime. The Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design program (CPTED), allows officers and businesses to work together to address security concerns regarding the exterior of a facility. The purpose of the CPTED review is to create an environment that impedes criminal activity by improving lighting, mitigating obstructions caused by trees, bushes, fences and dumpsters which create hiding spots, and by using security cameras to monitor the property.
