The crime mapping tool above is a crime prevention resource offered to you so that you may be informed of the events surrounding your neighborhoods. We understand that knowledge of such events or trends affords residents the opportunity to take extra steps to protecting their property, but it also provides a tool for those whom might have observed something or someone out of place during the event period.
Each event contains a case number. This is a communications record number that can be associated to a law enforcement report. The crime map contains events for EMS, The Arcadia Police Department, and The DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office.
If you have information as to any crime listed, we urge you to contact us and remind you that you may remain anonymous and could even be subject to a reward.
