This searchable database will provide easy access to the most commonly requested Part 1 crime statistics. As new datasets become available, they will be added to the portal.

Users can search by month or year and by crime type for city wide, neighborhood, NPU, police zone or beat. Users can also create a radius search around a specific address. Crime data will be updated at least once a week.”
