NEW YORK - A new interactive crime data map will allow residents in all five boroughs to assess which neighborhoods are the safest.

The map, available at maps.nyc.gov, pinpoints where specific crimes occurred and when they happened. Filters allow the user to break down seven felony crimes to a specific address, zip code or by precinct.

Crime data has always been available on the NYPD website, but the interactive map is the first of its kind in New York City.

Borough residents that spoke to News 12 agreed that the new technology will be an asset to the community.

NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly says it's this kind of technology and data collection that helps the NYPD drive crime down.
