High-tech tool crunches crime figures for N.J. police
The Jersey Journal
NEW JERSEY — Along Summit Avenue, near the Jersey City Municipal Court building, lies one of those geographic oddities: Three of the city's four police districts - East, South and North — all converge at one point.
A string of home burglaries took place there earlier this year, and the burglar unknowingly hit a home in all three districts. In the past, that might have proved fortuitous for the burglar, since the police districts rarely shared lower level street information with one another, police brass said.
