SpotCrime Enlists Woolpert to Deliver Google Maps Platform Services, Technical Support

The goal of the public facing crime alert service is to improve safety and promote transparency in police data.

BALTIMORE, Aug. 3, 2021 — (PRNewswire) —

BALTIMORE, Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Woolpert has been contracted by SpotCrime to provide Google Maps Platform services and technical team support for its independent, public facing crime alert service. SpotCrime, which is based in Baltimore, tracks incidents of crime across the U.S. and in select countries and recently implemented a nationwide missing persons database.

Founded in 2008, SpotCrime aims to increase transparency in police data. The service enables users to dial down to street-level reports and statistics to improve safety and foster goodwill and positive engagement with police. Its effectiveness hinges on precise and reliable mapping capabilities.

"With knowledge comes power, and we want to equip the public with the knowledge necessary to navigate their neighborhoods safely," said Colin Drane, SpotCrime founder. "We run a lean and efficient operation, funneling our capital into continually expanding and improving our services. Woolpert is a global mapping leader who delivers the same access to Google products as Google, while streamlining services and providing top-level technical support."

Woolpert Google Senior Account Executive Jeremy Quam said there are multiple opportunities for SpotCrime to realize efficiencies not only in pricing and support but in how the public interacts with its maps. He said Woolpert has more than 50 years of geospatial experience and has been a Google Premier Partner since 2016, making the firm an ideal option.

"SpotCrime is providing an immense public service for free, which makes it more imperative that they minimize their costs," Quam said. "We can assess their mapping platforms and employ proven best practices for optimal output at reduced costs. I can confidently come in and say, for example, 'Here's how you can save $1,500 on your bill.' We're excited to be able to provide this needed service to support this great resource."
