The crime map allows you to search for crimes reported in unincorporated Jefferson County. Although portions of cities (e.g., Lakewood) are visible in the crime map, this tool only shows crimes reported in the unincorporated areas.

Pinpoints on the map are placed randomly on the block where the crime occurred, and are not intended to appear on specific addresses. If you need more detail on a particular crime, contact our Records office.
