News Release ATLANTA POLICE DEPARTMENT UNVEILS OPEN DATA CRIME PORTAL
New Searchable Crime Database Available
ATLANTA – As a part of the Atlanta Police Department’s commitment to President Barack Obama’s 21st Century Police Initiatives, we have launched our open crime data portal. This searchable database will provide easy access to the most commonly requested Part 1 crime statistics. As new datasets become available, they will be added to the portal.
“We are certain this will add another layer of transparency that already exists between the Atlanta Police Department and our community,” said Chief George Turner. “It is important that we provide our citizens with accurate and timely information whenever possible.
Currently, data is available for the present day, the last 24 hours and beyond. On the historical page users can query historical crime statistics and download it in a commonly used CSV file. Users can search by month or year and by crime type for city wide, neighborhood, NPU, police zone or beat. Users can also create a radius search around a specific address. Crime data will be updated at least once a week.
Note: The crime data used on this website cannot be used to recreate the Official FBI UCR reports.
