Safety: Resources for Monitoring Crime
Woodside’s crime rate is very low. For an area of .2 square miles, with approximately 181 residents, our town is very quiet and peaceful.
If you wish to monitor crime in your area, there is an online site called CrimeMapping.com that can be used. Crimes around a particular address will be reported to you by using this app. Alerts will be sent to your email whenever a crime is committed in the area that you have selected. This application will also provide a weekly report on what crimes, if any, have been committed in your area.
You may also receive press releases from the Delaware State Police on any events or crimes that are occurring in Delaware. This also includes traffic accidents and delays. The Delaware State Police will often ask for assistance from the public in locating suspects or warning the public of any criminal activity that may be occurring. Each week, a notification list of homeless people or sex offenders who are released from the prison system are published, so the public may be aware of those individuals who may be living in your area. The Delaware State Police Public Information Office is currently utilizing WordPress.com to send and archive press releases for everyone to view.
