SALEM, Ore. -- Today the Oregon State Police (OSP) launched a new interactive map, accessible from their website. The map will be searchable by county, activity type, and violation type. It represents an easy way for the public to track State Police activity all across the state.
According to a statement released by OSP, "patrol activities" will be divided into two types of content—Charges and Events. An Event represents any incident reported to OSP dispatch, while Charges will only include citations or warnings, issued for violations of Oregon law.
The OSP statement further broke these headings down into specific categories, such as Calls for Service, Crashes, Routine Contact, Speed, Occupant Safety (for seatbelts, etc.), Lane Safety, Impaired Driving, and Distracted Driving.
The map can be filtered by date, however the OSP statement did not indicate how often the map will be updated.
OSP will be fielding feedback here: firstname.lastname@example.org
