How the results are calculated:

Percent change = Number of crimes that occurred within search period minus number of crimes that occurred between the same dates the previous year divided by number of crimes that occurred between the same dates the previous year.
If the number of crimes that occurred between the same dates the previous year is 0, the percent change cannot be calculated and N/A is displayed.

This report and accompanying maps only include offenses where MPD has provided map coordinates that can be displayed. Since January 1st, 2006, this limitation excludes 752 out of 89466 total crimes (approximately 0.84%of the data). The ability to view the map is removed if there are more than 750 offenses.Data Disclaimer:

  1. Great blog, great organization, and great information. DCCA is happy to help at any time.

  2. My car (pick-up) is regularly burgularized about every six weeks. From past experience of replacing broken windows, I do not lock the vehicle or keep anything of significant value in it. Sunglasses will disappear or some other small item after the thief has rifled thru the glove box and/or console storage, strewing the contents throughout the interior. I do not report these intrusions. Would it be of value to the neighborhood to do so?

  3. Wayne — YES, please report them. It matters. Thanks.
