I came across this nifty professional mashup while looking up a council resolution on my city’s website. works with police departments across the US to aggregate crime reports. Please note they only show crimes for the jurisdictions that are subscribed to this service (so in my case the county police reports are showing, but that doesn’t cover all crimes committed in my city). You can even get customized “Crime Alerts” for your neighborhood. They have neat filtering options for Sorting the crimes, Filtering by Date range, and some Location options. Their interface for this the best designed, most compact I’ve seen. Overlapping markers are merged into a marker set. The mashup response is fairly quick, especially considering this is done in the Google Maps JavaScript API. They also have nifty analysis charting options to see trends in the data.
