A real estate company has a new website that lets prospective home buyers and others see what crimes are being committed in city neighborhoods.

The company is called Trulia, and the website allows people to check crime in 50 different cities, including Chicago.

The crime statistics are displayed on what the company calls a "heat map" with low-crime areas in green and high-crime areas in red.
