The East Bay Regional Park District will be more transparent concerning police and fire activity in its parks by launching a new system making information more accessible to the public.

The district said in a statement Aug. 1 the new system will make disclosable public safety activity information more accessible. It allows any member of the public to access near real-time public safety activity mapping information. People can also sign up for daily or weekly email updates.

The system will also include an interactive webpage with near real-time mapping of police and fire activity, including location, date and time, a general description, and outcome.

The new system allows updates to be emailed out automatically rather than manually by public safety staff, increasing efficiency and allowing staff to focus on other important activities.
