Crime Mapper

Do you ever wonder which way crime trends shift in the neighborhood or if what you are seeing matches statistics?

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) has a crime mapper that is used to search by address, Police Service Area, or District, and other geographic or site locators such as a recreation center, school, or ward. Timeframes can be 30 or 60 days, a year or calendar year to date. Statistics are measured against the same time frame in the prior year.

Not all crime are covered but it does track property crimes (theft, burglary, theft from auto, etc.) and violet crimes (homicides, sex assault, robbery, assaults, etc.).

You can access the tool on the Crime Map website.
