Salt Lake City Crime Stats

Welcome to the crime statistics page. Here you can search crime data going back to 2009 in order to see the ebb and flow of criminal activity and other public safety issues based on data contained in the department’s records management system (RMS). Please remember that crime data changes as cases work their way through the criminal justice system. A call that comes in as a burglary might end up being dismissed when responding officers find a homeowner locked of their residence. On the other end of the spectrum, an unattended death may, upon further investigation, be reclassified as a homicide.

Remember, crime statistics only tell part of the story in any neighborhood.

To reduce your neighborhood’s crime rate, get to know your neighbors, form a Neighborhood Watch Group, join SLCPD’s Volunteer Corps, meet your Community Intelligence Officer at monthly Community Council meetings. More options are available on our Community Engagement page.

Where can I set up crime alerts related to my residence or business?
Use the integrated crime map to view the latest incidents near you. You may choose to receive email crime alerts — free of charge, except where your data plan incurs them — empowering you to make informed decisions to help improve the safety of your neighborhood and community.
Where can I see a list of police calls for service?
Information posted at www.slcpd.com/policecallsforservice reflects calls for police service received over the last 48 hours that have been cleared by a responding officer. All information is preliminary and subject to change.
Where can I download crime data and sort it for myself?

As part of an initiative to improve the accessibility, transparency, and accountability of City government, the Open Data SLC catalog provides open access to City-managed data. We invite you to actively participate in shaping the future of this data catalog by suggesting additional datasets or building applications with the available data.

Who's my Community Intelligence Officer?

Visit the CIU page to see which district you live in and to contact your officer directly.

The Salt Lake City Police Department has a special unit devoted to grassroots problem-solving within the community. The Community Intelligence Unit (CIU) has eight officers who attend monthly community council meetings within the City’s seven City Council Districts. While CIU officers share and receive a lot of information at these meetings, it is daily interaction with residents that fosters the trust necessary to tackle public safety issues together.

If you have a problem in your neighborhood—from graffiti to loud parties, drug dealers to gangs—your CIU officer is ready to connect you with the law enforcement and community resources necessary to address the issue.

Disclaimer

Crime Statistics accessible on this page are preliminary figures for general situational awareness and trend purposes only. Although SLCPD utilizes the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS), the data displayed on this page shows summary information for the primary offense on all cases generated by the Salt Lake City Police Department within areas and time periods as selected by the user.

Limitations:

  • Data only goes back as far as 2009.
  • Crime Statistics on this page sum data at the monthly level and will be updated one week after the close of each month.
About UCR:

Cases are classified by primary offense per the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) system. However, these figures are not subjected to any other standards set forth under UCR. Due to the constraints of the UCR reporting system, these 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 primary 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 breakdown of every primary offense within the records management system as of the date and time of the last update. For a more in-depth look at UCR, please visit http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/ucr.

Accuracy:

Although every reasonable effort is made to verify data, accuracy is subject to the constraints of the report generation process as well as the manner, format, point in time of any query and the policy in force at the time. Also, follow-up investigations frequently change crime classifications.

Liability:

The Salt Lake City Police Department accepts no liability for decisions made—or not made—by any users based on information herein.
