The Kansas City Police Department is now offering this nifty online tool to look up crimes in your neighborhood (or anyone else's neighborhood). Data is updated every night, and you can even get e-mail alerts about crimes near your address.
(We had a short story about this in Thursday's paper, and I know someone posted it on the OT. But I thought I'd do a post for the weekend, when people who are interested would have a little more time to play around with it.)

P.S. The Star has a crime-mapping tool on our Web site, too. It's cool, but not quite as comprehensive.
