If you ever wondered where exactly crime happens in Sonoma County, you'll get that chance soon.
The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office is now using RAIDS (Regional Analysis and Information Sharing) online crime mapping technology to pinpoint where crimes occur, according to a press release.
RAIDS is also used by the Santa Rosa Police Department, which allows the public to see Sheriff's Office reports and Santa Rosa Police Department reports on the same map side by side. It's a free service offered to the public and Law Enforcement agencies nationwide.
A live version of RAIDS Online will be on display Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the Santa Rosa Finley Center, 2060 West College Ave, Santa Rosa, CA from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm as part of GIS Day 2012. (
