Crime Activity and Mapping
For many years, the Carmel Police Department has provided crime activity maps on our website to keep the public informed about the calls for service in our community. A new software program has enabled all Hamilton County police agencies to participate in this public sharing of information. This interactive mapping website allows Hamilton County residents to research and observe local law enforcement calls for service. The website gathers information from the Hamilton County Public Safety Communications Center and plots the data on a map for the entire Hamilton County. Addresses are given as hundred blocks rather than specific locations to protect victim’s privacy. With a click of a mouse, users can view general information about each incident. Mapped incidents specific to Carmel Police Department are found at
