Making crime adorable

The cute little icons make the new NOPD crime map look like something you can play on your Wii.

Update: I realize the disclaimer says that "users must not consider the information reliable" but perhaps we have our first (not entirely reliable but still perhaps helpful) key to tracking down the Serpas checkpoints. Here are all the DUIs mapped during the past week.

The most recent announced checkpoint was "Uptown" May 21 9:00 PM to May 22 5:00 AM. Unfortunately for us... although perhaps fortunately for motorists that evening... the arrests do not appear to cluster anywhere in what we would consider the Uptown area during that time frame. Bears watching, though.
