SFPD Incident Report

$179 / year

This dataset includes police incident reports filed by officers and by individuals through self-service online reporting for non-emergency cases. Reports included are those for incidents that occurred starting January 1, 2018 onward and have been approved by a supervising officer.

Categories: , ,

Incident reports filed by officers are approved by a supervising officer. Once approved and electronically signed by a Sergeant or Lieutenant, no further information is added to the initial report. A supplemental report for additional information or clarification is generated if necessary.

Reports can come from one of three sources. These are discernable through the “Report Type Description” and “Report Type Code” field:
1. Initial: The first report filed for the incident
2. Vehicle: A special incident report related to stolen and/or recovered vehicles
3. Coplogic: Filed online by an individual

Incidents can have one or many associated Incident Codes. For example, an officer may have a warrant for an arrest and while making the arrest discovers narcotics in the individual’s possession. The officer will record an incident code for the warrant as well as the discovery of narcotics.

Coordinates are provided within the dataset where feasible. Coordinates could be missing for the following reasons:
1. Invalid addresses – addresses submitted by officers pass through validation, however, the online submission does not validate addresses on entry. While best efforts are made to match those to valid addresses when loading to the Crime Data Warehouse, there are still technical limitations to fixing all poorly formed addresses.
2. Addresses for incidents outside of SF – some cases are referred from outside San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) districts, these will be marked as Out of SF in the Police District column and not have associated geographic information.
