Chicago crime database

The Chicago crime database is a freely browsable database of crimes reported in Chicago that uses Google Maps. This is just like part one of the ideas for "keeping the public safe and geeling safe" that I was proposing in May, that is it enables the public to find incidents that have occurred nearby.

Also rather happily, part 2 of my idea - using feeds to keep the public informed of developments - is also rather neatly covered by Microsoft's wide ranging announcement of support for RSS at Gnomedex last Friday.
