How to use the Dashboard

Tutorial Video - Overview of the Crime Dashboard


1 - Using the Filters

Across the top of the Crime Dashboard is a series of filters that allows you to sort the data by year (data goes back to 2008), type of crime, precinct and Micro Community Policing Plan neighborhood. 

Whatever filter is applied will change the data in both the table and the chart below.

For example, selecting "Person Crime" or "Property Crime" under group will give you a sort that separates violent crimes from crimes like burglary.

You can also sort by the MCPP neighborhood and precinct that you live or work in.  If you aren't sure which neighborhood or precinct you are in, you can type in an address into the Precinct and Neighborhood Locator Map

To turn these filters off, either click on the red "X" near the filter icon, or return the category choice to "all".
