SALT LAKE CITY — A new webpage offers the public a variety of ways to chart crime trends in the city.
Crime Statistics accessible on this page represent preliminary counts of original Police Incident Reports. It is intended for general situational awareness and trend purposes only. Full statistical analysis to determine the confidence level of this data has not been performed. Reports generated on this page show summary information for all cases generated by the Salt Lake City Police Department within the selected areas and time periods.
Police Incident Reports are classified by primary offense categories as defined by the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) system. However, data is not subjected to any other standards set forth under UCR. Due to the constraints of the UCR reporting system, figures have not been subjected to the stringent UCR verification process. As a result, these figures only show how many cases are designated under each offense type; they do not account for the number of individual victims, suspects, arrestees, etc. Furthermore, they are not UCR or “crime rate” numbers and are not intended to be used as such. Rather, they are a primary offense breakdown of every case within the records management system as of the date and time of the last update. Please visit www.ucrdatatool.gov/abouttheucr.cfm to learn more about UCR.
Although every reasonable verification effort is made, the accuracy of any data is subject to the constraints of the report generation process as well as the manner, format and point in time of any query. Additionally, all figures are subject to further analysis and revision during the investigative process.
The Salt Lake City Police Department accepts no liability for decisions made—or not made—by the public based on information herein.
