Crime Mapping

Welcome to the Community Crime Map Application

The crime map section of the Placer County Sheriff’s Office web site allows the public to see crimes that have been reported in the county within a few days of their occurrence. Our crime mapping records are updated each business day to ensure the most current information is available to the community. Users can choose which crime types they would like to view for a period of up to 180 days. The map can be viewed in a variety of different formats: Street map, Satellite.

The crime mapping data reflects crimes as they have been reported to the Sheriff’s Office.
