Crime Reports 100% open

Minneapolis, MN

What data is expected?

Open crime data helps communities make informed judgements about public safety, as well as providing transparency into how local police power is being exercised. For U.S. City Open Data Census purposes, crime report data should include at a minimum the following elements: date, time, location, incident type, and narrative information — best would be exact date, location, and type of crime, but per day per street or postal/zip code are acceptable for Census purposes.

  • Date and time
  • Location (may be coordinates or addresses; addresses may be at the block level, such as “5XX Main Street”)
  • Incident type
  • Narrative information
