The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office (SMCSO) has just rolled out a new resource for civilian access to crime data and arrest information in a user-friendly online format.
San Carlos cititzens may access the website by going to http://smso.crimegraphics.com
For the initial website rollout, SMCSO will be providing the public with access to:
CRIME MAPPING: Ability to view crime information by date range, location and/or crime type(s).
ARREST INFORMATION: Access to the preceding 30 days of adult arrest information including names, ages and specified charges. **Please note certain cases and/or arrests may be exempt from disclosure pursuant to various confidentiality laws.**
ABILITY TO RECEIVE NOTIFICATIONS: Ability to sign up for email notifications by type of information and frequency of desired receipt.
In the future, SMCSO officials say the website will provide additional community resources, including access to a database of outstanding stolen vehicles, missing persons, warrants and crime analysis.
"It is our hope the community finds the information contained on this website easy to access, useful and relevant," SMCSO said in a statement.
