Below you will find MPD's data dashboard. It gives people an inside, interactive look at Minneapolis Police Department data. This dashboard is in direct response to community questions about specific calls for service and police self initiated activity. The data dashboard shows data from November 2016 going forward.
This dashboard is a work in progress and could change based on input from both the department and community. This is a project Chief Arradondo has been working on with our community for the past couple years. Scroll down for answers to FAQs, definitions, and to watch a video explaining how the data dashboard works.
