Chubbuck police using new Community Dashboard program
CHUBBUCK — Chubbuck police are using a new program that will make it easier for community members to stay informed about crimes and other incidents occurring in the city.
They say the Community Dashboard program can be accessed online at www.communitydashboard.info/chubbuck.
Currently, the Chubbuck Police Department has posted information about accidents, DUIs, burglaries, vehicle burglaries and stolen vehicles that have been reported in the last 60 days.
“As you look at the program you can click on any of the above listed categories and then scroll down to the map to see where those incidents have taken place. You can also click on any of the icons on the map and it will show you the date and time of the incident as well as the report number and the block address for the incident,” according to a news release. “This dashboard will not contain any names or exact addresses.”
Police say the website also contains bar graphs, with the blue bars showing the number of incidents that have occurred during the previous 30 day period and the gold bars showing those that have happened in the current 30 day period.
In addition to the program above, police say they are going to start using an internal dashboard that will help them identify areas of concern in the community and determine where they need to focus their resources.
“We feel that this information will help us performs our day to day duties more efficiently and serve our community better moving into the future,” Chief Bill Guiberson said in the news release. “It will also provide us with much needed data to make sure we are placing our resources where they are needed the most.”
