We’ve just updated our Roanoke Valley crime map with the latest offenses from Salem and Roanoke County — and Roanoke, as well. The data includes offenses through July 27.
Last week, Salem reported four larcenies, one burglary and one aggravated assault. In western Roanoke County, there were three larcenies and one burglary.
Also, the Salem Police Department provides more detailed information than other localities — so in addition to the Roanoke Valley crime map, we have a more detailed Salem crime map you can search, as well.
Follow the links above and you can see where they were and what they were. Our data delivery editor, Matt Chittum, has more information how you can use the searchable crime maps.
He also has a special question for Salemites. We’ve noticed fewer people seem interested in the more detailed Salem crime map — even though it’s got more interesting stuff. Matt would like to know why. You can read his post, and leave a comment, right here.
