Web site offers crime reports

Residents of South Shore who live in El Dorado County can view details of crime reports dating back to 2001.

While full reports aren’t listed on the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department’s Web site, other information is listed such as what crime authorities responded to, what street it was on, the date and time of the occurrence.

The department prefaced the information with cautions that if a crime was reported, it does not necessarily mean a crime was committed. In addition, a high number of reports on a particular street does not mean it is a bad area since variables include the length of the street and the five years worth of data. Lastly, calls to 911 do not mean a report was taken.

The sheriff’s department’s Web site can be found by visiting the county’s site at
