Santa Cruz:

Why Use This Site?

We find ourselves getting a lot of our daily information from social media sites.

On the whole, this is a good thing. It's what separates us from the PRC. A free, uncensored forum for the exchange of information, ideas, and opinions.

There is however a dark side to this media. Not everyone posting on these platforms are presenting accurate information. If left unchecked, inaccurate statements all too often become rumor and then repeated as fact.

The purpose of this website is to provide the public a one stop platform to verify, explore, and track factual information relating to crime and safety issues in the City of Santa Cruz.
