HUNTSVILLE - The Walker County Sheriff's Office has stepped up its efforts to keep residents up to date with illegal activity in the area so they can be aware of what is going on. Sheriff Clint McRae is pleased to announce that the sheriff's office and BAIR Analytics Inc. recently partnered to provide a new way for the public to stay informed about crime in Walker County. The sheriff's office now has an online crime map called RAIDS Online (www.raidsonline.com) that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Walker County citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the law enforcement to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur. "This program is just another innovative resource that we have tapped into in order to make things more convenient for our community," McRae said. Walker County citizens can view a map and grid with all of the crimes in their area, sign up for neighborhood watch reports that automatically email a breakdown of recent crime activity, and submit an anonymous tip about a crime directly to their law enforcement agency. RAIDS Online automatically syncs with the sheriff's office records system to keep crime information updated online and in the mobile app.
