Watchful Eye crime maps launched

watchful_eye_poster_t235_315.jpgThe News Sentinel launched its Watchful Eye interactive crime maps today. Each day at noon, we’ll be posting a new one: Monday is violent crimes; Tuesday is robberies; Wednesday is burglaries; Thursday is drugs and alcohol, and Friday is traffic.
Each map will be accompanied by a line or two of analysis of trends over previous weeks.
If readers are interested in doing their own searches of crime reports in the area, they also can go to the RaidsOnline crime map on, which includes continuously updated data from the Knoxville Police Department, Knox County Sheriff’s Office and many other agencies.
