Public Safety Incident Maps can be used by law enforcement agencies to create a series of incident map layers (crimes, arrests, warrants, offenders, and so on) from Computer Aided Dispatch or a Records Management System.

The incident layers are the foundation for a collection of public safety maps used by law enforcement agencies. They can be updated on an ad-hoc basis or at regular intervals, and stored in an ArcGIS Online organization or Portal for ArcGIS instance.


Public Safety Incident Maps require specific technical experience and software.
