Waltham police maps!

This is awesome. Someone sent me a link to a tool that takes crime data from the Waltham Police Department, and overlays it on Google Maps. The result is a map of Waltham that contains flags at the addresses where crimes were logged. You can see it here.

The person who sent it to me added this comment:

The Waltham feed is refreshed monthly. Users can also search by street and setup alerts to be notified when events happen on streets they wish to monitor.

This tool also lets you choose other municipalities to map crime locations, including a few in Massachusetts, but Newton is not one of them. On the other hand, the Newton Tab already offers a similar map every week in print (but not online).
