SpotCrime’s Philly crime map gets 30k visitors/month

SpotCrime, the national crime mapping tool, recently passed the 1 million unique visitor mark, and visitors of the service’s Philly crime map make up 30,000 of those visitors per month, said founder and former Philly resident Colin Drane.

SpotCrime sends out 70,000 to 80,000 Philly crime email alerts per month, Drane said.

Since the City of Philadelphia released its crime data and API, a handful of locally-built crime apps have popped up.
