PLEASE NOTE:

The Seattle Police Department cautions against using crime and/or other police data to make decisions/comparisons regarding the safety of an area or the amount of crime.

Crime statistics represent only police services where a report was made and do not include other calls for police service.

The data do not reflect or certify "safe" or "unsafe" areas. When looking at crime statistics it is important to consider geography (business vs. residential), and major institutions that exist within the boundaries (i.e. hospitals, schools, parks, etc.) of the reporting areas.

Data will sometimes reflect where the crime was reported versus where the crime occurred.

Areas with a high volume of foot traffic or that are more densely populated may have more reported crime. This does not necessarily mean more crime occurs there, but that more crime is reported there.

* Crimes (Part I Offenses) are derived from SPD Data Center Monthly Returns. Crime classifications are based on FBI UCR Summary guidelines. Monthly crime counts are static and aggregated over time and should not be used to compare operational or dynamic data.

** Larceny-Theft counts were extracted on 1/17/15 from SPD RMS in order to account for a backlog of online reporting that occurred in 2013, and will not match data submitted in the Monthly Returns.
