Manage Areas will allow you to overlay shape files onto the CrimeReports or CommandCentral Analytics map - this includes any beats, zones, districts, etc. that your agency uses to divide your city for patrol. It is imperative to have at least one shape file (a boundary of the city or county) for CommandCentral to work properly. Below you will find step by step instructions on how to manage the areas in your account.

When selecting shapes to import, please note existing areas with the same label/name will be updated.
After importing the shape file you can choose to display them within CommandCentral Analytics or CrimeReports by checking the appropriate boxes.
