The Marathon County Sheriff's Department is getting tech savvy.
Sheriff's officials have launched a new online tool called CrimeReports.
They say it allows the public to access crime data in Marathon County for free.
Officials say they hope this will improve communications with the community and help reduce crime.
"They're able to log on to CrimeReports and see what's going on in their area almost on a real time basis and anytime of the day 24/7 they can look and find out what's going on," said Captain Greg Bean.
To use the program, head to the Marathon County Sheriff's Department website and click on CrimeReports.
