Crime Map

These are the major crimes and attempted crimes reported at Ann Arbor addresses during November, 2016. The symbols indicate the location within one block of all homicides, burglaries, vehicle thefts, sexual assaults, and robberies.
Reader Frank Bertram wondered why our November crime map did not include the October 4 killing of Jordan Klee at the west-side Pinelake Village Cooperative, for which three men have been charged with murder. We in turn wondered why the map on Crimemapping.com, one of the sources from which we build our own map, was also missing the murder.

It turns out that although charges have been filed, an investigation of the case is still ongoing. As a result, the police have designated the case as "locked," and it hadn't yet, and still hasn't, been reported to CLEMIS (the Court and Law Enforcement Management Information System), the interagency group that provides Crimemapping with its data. When does a case get locked? It happens only with serious crimes. "I am only aware of homicide cases being locked and that is only until all facets of the investigation are complete," says the AAPD's Sgt. Tom Hickey.
