What if we had the technology that will allow us to view locations of the latest crime scenes through a map? Well, the FBI has been thinking about that for a long time. In fact, the FBI has just launched a new website that will show visitors the location of incidents down to the street level. FBI has tapped the powerful mapping service of Google, Google Maps, to make it all possible.
The site can also display “Wanted” poster photos of suspects complete with their physical descriptions, and users can also search locations, a unidentified robber’s nickname, weapons used, and other clues. In a statement, the FBI said that the new website is intended to protect citizens from gun violence, not just financial losses. “Many bank robberies are committed using verbal demands or notes; however, the use of weapons and threats of violence are also common,” it said. You can check out the website here.
