Neighborhood Crime Information

mappingcrimeChelsea, MA. The Chelsea Police Department would like to remind the public that we offer an online crime map and downloadable app called RAIDS Online. The app is interactive and compatible with most all newer high tech mobile devices such as smartphones, Ipad’s, and tablets.

Some of the interactive features of the RAIDS app includes the ability for the community to analyze crime data, incidents, and arrests to see firsthand what is going on in their neighborhood. RAIDS Online Mobile which we brought to you about (2) years ago was the first crime mapping application that allows users to view near real-time hotspots of crime based on the user’s current location.

The Chelsea Police also offers a free application called “MYPD” for users of the IPad, Iphone, Ipod Touch, and Android mobile devices.  The app allows you to send tips and photos directly to a variety of sources within the Chelsea Police Department.

The public is encouraged to visit to learn about these resources available at no cost for the public.  Both of these applications can be downloaded through a search anytime from Apple Itunes and the Google Play Store.

Please keep in mind that the apps are not intended for emergency use so calls requiring a police response such as a crime in progress should still be made by calling 911.
