TYRONE, Ga. — Police used to plot crime trends in Tyrone, Ga., by sticking different colored pins into a map hanging on the squad room wall.

"It was great for us here at the department, but it wasn't getting out to the public," Police Chief Brandon Perkins said. "I decided when I came in as chief (in September) that we were going to be an open-door agency so our citizens would know what is going on."
