Busted! Grid, the leading innovator in the aggregation of crime information, announces the addition of Greensboro, North Carolina to its interactive crime-mapping tool Busted! Crime Maps. The database has added nearly 220,000 reports from the Greensboro Police Department, Wilson Police Department, Lincoln County Sheriffs Office, High Point Police Department, Chapel Hill Police Department, and Rocky Mount Police Department.
According to the 2012 FBI’s Uniform Crime Report data, overall property crime has declined while violent crimes have increased in Greensboro. Within the violent category, all sub-categories fell except assaults. The Greensboro Police Department credits the decline in crime categories due to citizens policing their own communities. Residents taking action to inform police of crimes is believed to have helped stop many crimes from occurring.
