I’ve been remiss in calling attention to IncidentLog.com.
The site takes the police and fire incident data that’s available on the City of Houston website, and displays the data on a nice google map.
An added bonus is that it is searchable. I’m not sure how long the data is saved, but it appears to go further back than the incidents displayed on the city site at any given time.
Now we just need the City of Houston to add a METROrail collision tag to its incident reports. This would save interested parties the trouble of having to file public information requests to obtain collision information that METRO ought to be providing without such prompting.
