The NOPD Crime Map can be a little tricky to use, so we’ve compiled a few tips to help you learn about what is happeneing near your house quickly.

To view recent crimes reported near your house:

  • You can visit the NOPD Crime Maps here.
  • Enter your full address, including street number, name, city, state, and zip code (eg: 4701 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70119) into the address bar above the map and click the green search button. Sometimes hitting the enter button does not work, so it is best to click the green search button.
  • If you wish to look at a date range other than the default “recent” date range, click the grey “Dates” button on the grey menu bar directly above the map. Enter the date range you would like to see (or use the calendar icons in each input box to select the dates in which you are interested). Then click the “apply” button.
  • If you wish to filter the map by crime types, you can click the “Crime Type” button in the grey menu bar above the map. Select the crimes you want to see on the map (they are all checked by default, but you can uncheck the crime types you do not want to see on the map). Clicking each checkbox updates the map in real time; you do not have to click apply for these to update.
  • Zooming works best if you use the sliding scale to the right of the map. The magnifying buttons on the left do not seem to zoom in and out as they should.
  • You can click on any crime icon on the map to get more details about the crime.

You can also set up email notices from the crime map. To set up these crime alerts:

  • You canĀ visit the NOPD Crime Maps here.
  • Click the orange “Receive Crime Alerts” button to the right of the search bar at the top of the screen.
  • Enter the email address at which you would like to receive the alerts, and confirm the email address.
  • Enter your full address, including street number, name, city, state, and zip code (eg: 4701 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70119) into the field labeled “address,” and click the blue “locate address” link under the field to confirm the address can be located.
  • Select the radius around your address that you would like to trigger alerts. You may choose any distance from 500 feet to 2 miles from your house. You will get alerts about anything that happens within this radius of the address you put in the notice.
  • Check or uncheck the different crime types, depending on your preferences. You can select one, several, or all crime types as you see fit.
  • You may choose to be alerted about sex offenders within the chosen radius of your address as well. This option defaults to off, but you can easily check the box labeled “Yes, I want a link to state sex offenders in my alert.” to receive these alerts.
  • Click the “Save Subscription” button, and you will receive crime alerts straight to your inbox!
