I was on www.wzzm13.com 's website today and saw this cool new feature they have.  It's called Spot Crime! If you live in the Grand Rapids area you can type in your zip code and various crimes that have occurred in your area show up on a map.  They include, arrests, burglaries, shootings, arson, theft, assault, robberies, vandalism and other. It's really very interesting to see what's going on in your own backyard, the stuff that doesn't make it on the news.  We all gotta watch out for each other, I enjoy the Mrs. Kravitz's of the neighborhood.  You know, the ones who are always looking out the window.  Come to think of it I could BE one of the Mrs. Kravitz's;)

Check out the link and see what's going on in your backyard.  It works in the same way as the Sexual Preditor/Offender maps. You can go to that link, type in your address, and zoom in on the map to see if you have any sexual preditors in your neighborhood, or even living on your block.  I have 104 in my zip code.  It's good to know what's going on around you and it's all public information.  Knowledge is power!  Check it out...
