New on EveryBlock: San Francisco crime

May172011

We’ve just added crime reports to our San Francisco site.

From now on, if you’re a San Francisco EveryBlock user, you’ll get updates on crime near your followed places, courtesy of the San Francisco Police Department. Here’s an example: the latest crimes reported in the Mission.

Note that we were already publishing San Francisco service requests and police calls. This new crime data type is different: it encompasses crime reports that have been verified by the police, as opposed to phone calls that have been made to 311 or 911.

As with all of our government data, we intend it not only to be useful/newsworthy in itself, but also as a springboard for neighborhood discussion. If you’ve got more information on a crime, or have a question about it, post a comment so that your neighbors can see it.
