Citizen eye on crime

 

ICSO FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Citizen RIMS 

The Inyo County Sheriff’s Office, in cooperation with Sun Ridge Systems, is excited to release a new web-based interface called Citizen RIMS, which enables the public to view local crime data. Beginning February 13, 2014, the public will be able to engage in the following features:

• Incident mapping. The public will be able to view historical calls for service based upon a selected date span. The incident mapping feature is not real-time data; however, it is automatically updated throughout the day.

• Arrest log. An arrest log will be available to the public –this is historic data retained for 7 days.

• Inmate list. The listed information shows current in-custody inmates, as well as the most recent bookings at the Inyo County Jail. Information that can be viewed includes bail amount, offenses, and booking photos.

• Crime charts. This function displays crime data in chart form, with year to year comparisons (data not yet available for comparisons).

• Stolen vehicles. List of current, and reported, Inyo County stolen vehicles.

• Most wanted. List of current persons of interest that are wanted for questioning or apprehension in connection with a crime.

• Missing persons. List of current, and reported, Inyo County missing persons.

• Crime log (with juvenile and sensitive information omitted).

• Alerts. The public can sign up to receive email alerts regarding calls for service, and crimes.

“Citizen RIMS has the benefit of not only aiding the public and media in acquiring Inyo County crime

data, but also in reducing the amount of personnel time involved in requests for information,” said Sheriff Lutze. “Now through Citizen RIMS, local crime data is just a click away.”

Inyo County Citizen RIMS can be located at the Sheriff’s webpage, http://www.inyocounty.us/so/.

Sweet, so when a co-worker doesn’t show up for work we don’t have to wonder if he/she got locked up over the weekend, we can go directly the website!

Just because the public has a right to know, doesn’t make it right. What it really does is allow the public to hear the police side of the story only. At least the press makes a attempt to state these people are innocent till proven guilty. I would like to… Read more »

For the application of laws to be just, justice has to be meted out in public. The public has to know what the charges are, the circumstances of the crime and what the punishment is, and that the punishment is carried out fairly. it is the reason our Constitution guarantees… Read more »

I don’t think it’s right to post all these peoples pictures on a public site like this RIMS stuff. Especially when not one of them have likely been convicted of any of these charges yet. At least wait until they get their day in court. If they are not convicted,… Read more »

Trouble….contrary to your statement….the majority of the inmates in ICJ are serving their time…so yes, they have been CONVICTED. Inmate names, their charges, and photograph are public information. You must be worried your photo is going to be placed out there.

Seriously, they are posting their pictures the day they are arrested. You go figure it out from there.

Trouble, it’s called freedom of the press, you know, the US Constitution Bill of Rights.

The press has a right to know and an obligation to tell the public.

Perhaps you could hold a Constitutional Convention at your place and change the parts of the Constitution you don’t like.

Public arrest records actually protect arrestees from being secretly imprisoned and disappeared as happens in some countries. Unfortunately this protection is being undermined by US such as at Guantanamo. Too bad we forget people are innocent until proven guilty and end up with scam “check your record” websites that blackmail… Read more »

Reality, that web site has zero to do with the press. People have a right to be judge by their piers before being branded for life bye the arresting officers. Did I say a word about the press before you went off?

Dear Trouble,

The information on the website is public information. It is not confidential. The public has a right to know it.
