This dataset contains the collection and maintenance of crime data for incidents that occur in New York City public schools.

Categories: , ,

Since 1998, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) has been tasked with the collection and maintenance of crime data for incidents that occur in New York City public schools. For presentation purposes, each incident has been classified in one of three categories. These categories are:

Major Crimes: This category is consistent with those regularly and publicly reported by the NYPD. It includes the most serious personal and property crimes. The property crimes are burglary, grand larceny and grand larceny auto. The crimes against persons are murder, rape, robbery and felony assault.

Other Crimes: This category is composed of many crimes and incidents that range in severity. It includes reports of incidents such as arson/explosion, misdemeanor assault, criminal possession or sale of a controlled substance, sale of marijuana, criminal mischief, petit larceny, reckless endangerment, sex offenses (not including rape, which is included in the Major Crimes), and weapons possession.

Non-Criminal Incidents: This category includes actions which are not classified as crimes but are nevertheless disruptive to the school environment. It includes disorderly conduct, harassment, loitering, possession of marijuana, dangerous instruments and trespass.

Note: Blank Values in the incident numbers for a school indicate that the school did not have an associated incident count reported by the NYPD, or that the data about the school has been combined with that for other schools at the same location (in which case you are referred to the overall data for that “consolidated” location or campus.)
