Incidents

The "Part 1 Crime" dataset represents the location and characteristics of major (Part 1) crime against persons, such as homicide, shooting, robbery, aggravated assault, etc., within the City of Baltimore.

In May, 2020, the Baltimore Police Department began a significant upgrade to its new Records Management Systems to allow the department to transition from a paper-based system into a fully digital reporting environment. As a result of this massive transformation, we have experienced some complexities in properly and accurately translating the data from the new records system into the traditional Open Data Baltimore system. Based on our review, data on Part 1 Crime Incident Reports provided by Open Data Baltimore have been impacted starting in May, 2021 when the new system went online. BPD and the City are actively working with the vendor on a daily basis in addressing this matter as quickly as possible, so that we can fully restore our public reporting of data that ensures transparency and accountability in BPD operations.
