This may be one of the most useful tools to be placed into a real estate agent’s hands since the online MLS was created 2 decades ago. It may also be an agent’s worse nightmare as we all become more aware of criminal activity in the greater Nashville area. This crime mapping system makes it painfully obvious that crime is all around us…even in Belle Meade.
How the Crime Map Works
There are sixteen icons on the map. Each one represents a different type of crime. For example, a red fist is an assault, a blue dollar sign is a larceny and a green “F” is a fraud. Click on the icon and you get an incident number and a location. You can also receive crime alerts through email. If a crime happens within two miles of your house, you’re getting an email with that information almost instantaneously. This is a whole new level of neighborhood watch. Happy crime watching!
