Welcome to the DeLand Police Department’s crime mapping program.
Information regarding criminal activity is a valuable tool that residents can use to help protect themselves and their property. Free for citizens to use, this new crime mapping service empowers the community by putting valuable public safety information at your fingertips. With just a few simple keystrokes, computer users can view individual crimes plotted on a map within a specified date range, sorted by 14 different offense categories. Users also can view crimes occurring in the vicinity of a specific address, plot the distance between a crime and any address of interest and can also register to receive e-mail crime alerts when a new crime is reported in your neighborhood.
Offenses within the City of DeLand are mapped on a daily basis. In addition, offenses in the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office’s jurisdiction (unincorporated Volusia County plus the cities of Deltona, Debary and Pierson) can be viewed on the map. Incidents are classified based on the following offense categories:
- Disturbing The Peace
- Drugs/Alcohol Violation
- Motor Vehicle Theft
- Vehicle Break-In
Sex crimes are not plotted on the crime map and cannot be viewed with this program in order to protect the privacy of sex offense victims.
Remember: staying informed is one of your best tools for preventing victimization. Working together, we can all help take a bite out of crime!
William E. Ridgway, Chief of Police
