The Cook County Sheriff has added a "Cook County Crime Blotter" to their website. The Sheriff believes that this will help residents stay informed about what types of crimes are being reported and investigated in their communities. The County map is divided into four sections, which are the four suburban courthouses, Rolling Meadows, Skokie, Bridgeview and Markham. By clicking on each section, residents can "access basic information about some of the recent calls our officers have handled in that area." The Cook County Sheriff's Office receives about 40,000 calls a year. In addition to keeping residents informed of criminal activity in their communities, the Sheriff's Office also hopes that it will help them solve crimes. The hope is that by providing this information to residents, they can use their eyes and ears to help provide them with information once they know what the police are investigating and looking for.
