Crime Report and Dispatch Data Extracts

Important Information About the Data Extracts

  1. Because this data is produced via a complex set of processes, there are many places where errors can be introduced into the data that you will be downloading. The margin of error in this data is approximately 10%. Please keep this in mind when working with these data extracts. No representation is made or implied regarding the accuracy of the data being made available.
  2. Copies of Crime Reports are available to the public. HOWEVER, you cannot obtain a copy of a Crime Report just because you want one. To obtain a copy, you must have a legitimate need for the crime report. In other words, you have to be a victim, one of the parties involved in an accident, an attorney, insurance agent, or some other agent acting on behalf of an involved party.
  3. The Police Department is providing this data for download under the assumption that you have the computer skills necessary to understand operations like unzipping compressed files, opening data extract files, building queries, creating reports for output to a printer, etc. The Police Department does not have staff available to assist you in downloading, using, or interpreting this data.
  4. It is against State law (Government Code Section 6254) for us to provide victim's addresses for certain classes of crimes (mainly rape, sex or abuse-related crimes). Since the address field in the data extracts is usually that of the victim, it has been blanked out for the affected crime types. You can still research activity for those types of crimes, but location information will be limited to district, beat, or grid. This applies to the following crimes:
    • 220 - Attempted Rape
    • 261 - Rape
    • 262 - Rape
    • 264 - Rape
    • 273 - Domestic Violence/ Child Neglect
    • 286 - Sodomy
    • 288 - Other Sex Crimes
    • 289 - Other Sex Crimes
    • 422 - Terrorist Threats
    • 646.9 - Stalking
  5. We began using a new Records Management System (RMS) in February, 2004. This system manages all crime and incident reports for the Police Department. As a result, our data extracts have a different format when compared to previous years. The biggest difference you'll notice is how the reports are classified: we now use a combination of FBI UCR (Uniform Crime Report) codes and State codes. See the Helpful Code Definitions section in the data extracts links below for more information.
  6. Most law enforcement agencies have pre-defined areas for assignment and reporting purposes. For many years, the Sacramento Police Department has named these areas Sectors, Districts, and EDP's (Electronic Data Processing districts). In 2006, these areas were renamed. Sectors are now called Districts, Districts are now called Beats, and EDP's are called Grids. Districts are the largest of the areas; the City is divided into 6 Districts. The Districts are divided into Beats, which are assigned to Patrol officers. The Beats are divided into Grids for reporting purposes. Over the years, the various boundaries have changed, but the Grids have not changed significantly. As confusing as this all sounds, this information will be necessary when working with the data extracts. See the City of Sacramento Maps section in the database links below to download city maps showing the major streets, neighborhoods, EDP grids, districts, and beats.
Crime Report Data Extracts

The Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) program collects data on known offenses and persons arrested. UCR data is used in law enforcement administration, operation and management, as well as to indicate the fluctuations in the level of crime throughout America. Data Extracts

Dispatch Data Extracts

The Sacramento Police Department provides downloadable Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) files. A CAD system is a highly specialized system that uses telecommunications and geographic display to support police dispatch and response functions. Data Extracts
