OPD crime statistics


I’ve been working on extracting, collecting, marshaling and visualizing data related to the Oakland Police Department for more than three years now, and find my documentation of these efforts here on rikiWiki needs some reorganization!

I’ll keep a list of my most recent activities here:

  1. Rik, is there essentially one database that various sites provide different views of, or are there different data bases?

    For starters just having the years on the horizontal axis and the rate per thousand of population wb helpful. Would like to be able to drill down but more important wb to show same historical data, same format by zip code or beat.

    To be able to compare to some neighboring cities is too much to expect, but darn I’d like to see our historical trends compared to Richmond, San Leandro, and Haywards.
