About Crime Reports
In this section of EveryBlock, you can find out about criminal activity near you, from robberies to homicides.
The information comes from the Boston Police Department and includes where and when each crime occurred, the incident number, which primary and secondary "type" each crime falls under and the type of crime that occurred.
The information reflects incidents where the police responded and completed case reports. Note that a case report is not necessarily issued each time the police respond to a call. Also note that, though many case reports are the result of calls to 911, this data is not a list of 911 calls.
Crime incident reports are provided by Boston Police Department. This is a dataset containing records from the new crime incident report system, which includes a reduced set of fields focused on capturing the type of incident as well as when and where it occurred. Records in the new system begin in June of 2015.
