    The amount of specifics and details made available will likely be none, as it is now with CrimeReports.com.

    The last crime it has is from 2018. Not up to date.

    Perhaps the odd local crime report gets to CrimeReports.com via some other agency. They used to have much local activity until several years ago when it was widely reported how dangerous it was in Cumberland. Grim, et al got in a huff and CR.com stopped getting local crime info.

    Cumberland doesn’t use this site or give it any information.
