We elected to categorize crime incidents into 15 general crime type categories and 21 subcategories of crime and calls for service activity, including:
Each of these terms is searchable on its own, allowing the user to determine what type of criminal activity they would like to view or be informed of via email.
We remove all victim identification as part of the data publishing process. In addition, we protect victim identities by converting the exact street addresses to the block level.
For example, the address "1486 Lincoln Avenue" would be mapped and displayed as "1400 block of Lincoln Avenue."
We believe providing crime information to the public in an easy to use web based tool helps community members understand their surroundings and make informed decisions to protect themselves. While it is too early to determine whether displaying this information actually reduces crime, it helps raise awareness and create stronger community policing programs that improve the connection between law enforcement and the public.
