Calls for service transitioning to Citizen Connect program
On December 15, the Minot Police Department will complete a transition from the
traditional calls for service log to the Citizen Connect Crime Map.

customized date range. The user also has the option to filter the results to show
only Minot Fire Department calls, Minot Police Department calls, or both. The search
can also be filtered by specific types of incidents, for example, DUIs or burglaries.
Citizen Connect allows you to search for a specific area of town using an address,
for example, your home address. The results will show you incidents within an
adjustable radius between .01 and 10 miles of the address you searched. There is
also an option to create an alert for incidents that occurred in your searched
address radius that will email you daily, weekly, or monthly updates.
Incidents/cases that are sensitive in nature will not be plotted/shown on the map,
for example cases involving minors, or sexual assault crimes. Citizen Connect plots
the information within the center of a 500’ square grid, not the address of where
the incident occurred.

safety reasons, there is about a six-hour delay in the calls being posted onto the
map. This is to provide safety to our officers and the parties involved in any
