People who live in Cary can track crime in their neighborhoods, just by logging onto the Internet.

The Cary Police Department is offering a crime mapping feature on the town's official Web site.

All you have to do is type in an address, click on how far back you want to search and specify how far from the location of the address.

Depending on the speed of your computer, the data will load with the street, type of crime and date it happened.

You will see data for a variety of crimes including burglary, car break-ins, assault, drug offenses, sex offenses and fraud.
