Salt Lake City Crime Stats
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 Liaison Officer at monthly Community Council meetings. More options are available on our Community Engagement page.
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.
Visit the Community Liaison Officer page to see which district you live in and to contact your officer directly.
The Salt Lake City Police Department has special officers devoted to grassroots problem-solving within the community. The Community Liaison Officers attend monthly community council meetings within the City’s seven City Council Districts. While Community Liaison 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 Community Liaison Officer is ready to connect you with the law enforcement and community resources necessary to address the issue.

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.
- 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.
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 https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/ucr.
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.
