Activity Map Screen Shot

 

Oregon State Police have created an interactive map to show just how often they respond to calls in certain area around the state.  It includes when and where OSP responded to crashes, crimes, and routine contacts as well as information on citations and warnings issued.  You can see it on the state website:

We are still in the early stages of this project and will be making improvements along the way. The goal of this page is to connect the public with useful information pertaining to the great work done by the Oregon State Police. We value the public’s feedback and want to know what they think. Any suggestions, comments or questions can be emailed to ask.osp@state.or.us.
