Oakland Crime Maps for 2011 by Police Beat http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Copy-of-Oakland-Crime-Maps-for-2010-by-Police-Beat.html http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Copy-of-Oakland-Crime-Maps-for-2010-by-Police-Beat.html

Like most measures of social outcomes and neighborhood indicators, crime is not evenly dispersed across the city, so a citywide average does not speak to the reality of every neighborhood in the same way. Our beat level crime maps are powerful tools for examining distribution and change in crime across our city. In 2011 we saw shifts in crime in both the flatlands and the hills, and with some crimes that saw drops overall there were certain neighborhoods that experienced marked increases in these very crimes.

These maps represent crime reports that have been aggregated to police beats for a number of key crime types including robbery, shootings, burglary, property and violent crimes as well as homicides. The accompanying table shows the beat level report summaries for the city as a whole. You can download the complete set of beat level maps here (large 12MB PDF) or click on the maps for a popup slideshow in your browser.

To see a summary table of all crimes in Oakland compared with the past three years and our innovative Crime Calendars check out this post.

2011 Oakland Crime Review http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/2011-Oakland-Crime-Review.html http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/2011-Oakland-Crime-Review.html

In 2011, Oakland experienced a number of changes in crime patterns when compared to previous years. Overall, reported violent crime in 2011 was almost identical in volume to 2010 with 6,805 reports, while property crimes saw a 5.4% increase over the prior year, up to 25,995. Major changes in citywide indicators included a drastic jump in assaults with a firearm [245(a)(2)] up 25.5% in 2010, and up 27.6% compared to the previous five-year average. Domestic violence saw a marked drop of almost 20 percent, which is the unusual due to the fact that domestic violence is the only crime benchmark that typically increases with high unemployment levels. Likewise, reported incidences of rape were down 26.3%, and both drugs and prostitution saw large drops of 43.4% and 16.8%, respectively.  However, there is a caveat that comes with drug and vice crime report statistics: reported drug and vice crimes are almost entirely dependent on police action--no active raids or stings effectively means no crime from a pure statistical perspective.

While in-home robbery was down from a high in 2010, the 198 reports still represent a 32.9% increase compared to the past five years. Carjackings declined compared to 2010, and over previous years, down 24.5% from 2010 to 2011 (188).

To see how crime was distributed across the city and how it changed according to police beats, read our related post on beat level crime maps.

Oakland Crime Hot Spot Maps for the 3rd Quarter of 2011 http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Copy-of-Oakland-Crime-Hot-Spot-Maps-for-the-2nd-Quarter-of-2011.html http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Copy-of-Oakland-Crime-Hot-Spot-Maps-for-the-2nd-Quarter-of-2011.html

These crime report hot spot maps were developed for the Oakland Police Department to aid with intelligence-led policing efforts, to provide resource management support and to aid in targeting crime suppression tactics. These hot spot maps depict crime reports of: Violent Crime, Property Crime and Burglary and are arranged by Command Areas for the 3rd Quarter of 2011. A hot spot is an area with a higher intensity of crime than the surrounding area and is useful as a visual guide to identify areas of high crime incidence.

Hotspots is a term that describes locations with more than one report in the time period (3rd Quarter of 2011) or in areas where more than one report occurred in close proximity. While normally one report (incident) can include multiple crimes, these hotspots are computed using only one crime per report (incident), thus the actual number of crimes may be higher in the accompanying tables which show the beat level report summaries for each command area.

 

Note: UCR Part I Violent Crimes are as follows:

1: Homicide, 2: Attempted Homicide, 3-4: Rape, 5-8: Robbery, 9-12: Assault.

UCR Part I Property Crimes include:

13-15: Burglary, 17-19 Motor Vehicle Theft, 20-29 Arson, 30 Simple Assaults.

As part of our commitment to Open Data and to encourage others to analyse and use the data we manage, clean and curate we are making our crime reports database available publicly. If you are a coder, developer or hacker this is for you. If you're not technically inclined then we'd suggest you head on back to our Data Portal for more people friendly data. Or you can take a look at our analyses bases on these data in our partnership with the OPD here.

Oakland Police report data is generated from the Urban Strategies partnership with the Oakland Police Department. Cleaned and geocoded reports generally take one week to process, so data will be available up until the week prior. Crime report data is summarized by the week --Sunday - Saturday. Please note that the starting date is not always the Sunday of that week, but it represents the first instance of a report for that particular beat.

Urban Strategies Council and Oakland Police Department develop smarter policing

Following a two-year pilot program sponsored by Council member Desley Brooks, and with the support of Chief Anthony Batts, Urban Strategies Council has come on board to assist the Oakland Police Department with crime mapping and analysis in late 2010, helping the entire department develop new crime prevention tactics, usable mapping, and resource management. Junious Williams, the CEO, said, “This type of public-private partnership is critically important to effectively tackling social problems like crime. We look forward to establishing similar partnerships with other public agencies.”

The OPD Area Commander for East Oakland, Ersie Joyner, had this to say about the partnership: “With the reduction of staff and increase in crime it has become apparent that we must employ 21st century crime fighting techniques to deal with 21st century crime. Urban Strategies Council has become the foundation for every strategic move I make. This partnership exemplifies what we are trying to be in this city; innovative!”

Since the inception of this partnership, the first in the entire state, the Council has been delivering valuable crime analysis and mapping to key police personnel on a weekly basis. This intelligence is tailored to meet the distinct needs of Oakland law enforcement and supports dozens of senior department staff and beat officers on the job.

All publicly released products developed in this partnership are available online. You can view articles, maps and research focusing on:

Oakland Crime Maps for the 4th Quarter of 2010 by Police Beat http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Oakland-Crime-Maps-for-the-4th-Quarter-of-2010-by-Police-Beat.html http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Oakland-Crime-Maps-for-the-4th-Quarter-of-2010-by-Police-Beat.html

In addition to our yearly hot spot analysis and weekly maps and analyses we are releasing quarterly crime hot spot maps and beat level summary maps for the Oakland Police Department. These crime report maps are used by the OPD to plan for seasonal shifts in crime across the city and to evaluate crime prevention and suppression efforts throughout the year. These quarterly maps will be released publicly to inform public policy, community awareness and decision making in public agencies.

To see a summary table of all crimes in Oakland compared with the past three years and our innovative Crime Calendars check out this post.

These maps represent crime reports that have been aggregated by police beats for a number of key crime types including robbery, shootings, burglary, homicide and all violent crimes. You can download the complete set of beat level maps here (large 10MB PDF) or click on the maps for a popup slideshow in your browser.

Oakland Crime Hot Spot Maps for the 4th Quarter of 2010 http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Oakland-Crime-Hot-Spot-Maps-for-the-4th-Quarter-of-2010.html http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Oakland-Crime-Hot-Spot-Maps-for-the-4th-Quarter-of-2010.html

These crime report hot spot maps were developed for the Oakland Police Department to aid with intelligence-led policing efforts, to provide resource management support and to aid in targeting crime suppression tactics. These hot spot maps depict crime reports of; Violent Crime, Property Crime and Burglary and are arranged by Command Areas for the 4th Quarter of 2010. A hot spot is an area with a higher intensity of crime than the surrounding area and is useful as a visual guide to identify areas of high crime incidence.

Hotspots is a term that describes locations with more than one report in the time period (4th Quarter of 2010) or in areas where more than one report occurred in close proximity. While normally one report (incident) can include multiple crimes, these hotspots are computed using only one crime per report (incident), thus the actual number of crimes may be higher in the accompanying tables which show the beat level report summaries for each command area.

For our complete 2010 Hot Spot maps go to this article.

1: Homicide, 2: Attempted Homicide, 3-4: Rape, 5-8: Robbery, 9-12: Assault.

Oakland Crime Summary for 2010 http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Oakland-Crime-Summary-for-2010.html http://www.infoalamedacounty.org/index.php/Research/Crime-Safety/Crime-Research/Oakland-Crime-Summary-for-2010.html Following a two-year pilot program, Urban Strategies Council has come on board to assist the Oakland Police Department with crime mapping and analyses in late 2010, helping the entire department develop new crime prevention tactics, usable mapping, and resource management. Along with our detailed maps of crime hotspots and beat level crimes in Oakland we are releasing these citywide crime totals for 2010 along with comparison data for the past 3 years. For more of our Oakland Crime Analysis work search our site for the keyword "crime" or check our Crime Research pages.
  • In 2010 Oakland saw a 4% drop in violent crime and a 13% reduction in property crime compared with 2009.

Citywide Crime Summary for Oakland in 2010

citysummary2010

Over/Under compares the percentage change in 2010 from the previous 3-year average.

Note that these totals are based on all reported crimes provided by the OPD and will not accurately reflect official reported UCR totals due to methodology differences. These numbers represent the total counts of each type of crime reported.

2010 Crime Calendars

This year we produced a crime data visualization tool for the Oakland Police Department and the Neighborhood Crime Prevention Councils to help with understanding the crime trends throughout the past year. This method helps to predict likely trends for the upcoming year and is especially insightful about the types of crimes that peak on or around certain public holidays each year. The chart below illustrates the number of crimes per day for all of 2010, to view the full report with crime calendars for violence, property crimes, robbery, shootings, vice and burglary you can download it here.

The calendar includes 6,923 crimes reported by the Oakland Police Department with a maximum number of violent crimes occurring in one day of 40, a low of 4 and the average per day was approximately 19.

Violent Crimes per Day in Oakland in 2010

vcCalendar2010

Each day was given a ranking according to the number of crimes reported that day, and days were
classified into five categories based on their rankings. These categories are displayed in Figure 2. The
darkest category represents days that are in the top 10% of the rankings for crime reports (e.g. at least
90% of other days of the year had fewer crime reports), the next darkest represents days that are in the
11th-25th percentile, the next category represents days that are in the 26th-75th percentile, followed by a
category representing the 76th-90th percentile, and lastly the lightest category represents the lowest 10%
of days by rank.

The data ranges are as follows from darkest to lightest followed by the number of days which fell into each range: >27 crimes (33 days), 23 -26 (48 days), 15-23 (176 days), 12-14 (66 Days), 4-11 (42 Days).

This great Calendar visualization tool was developed originally by our partners at Community Research Partners in Columbus, part of the NNIP.

Monthly Crime Trends by Police Command Area for 2010

crimeCA2010

 

Key findings from this analysis include:

  • Total crime reports in Oakland for 2010 were down from 2009 but slightly up from the previous 3 year average.
  • The 3 Command Areas follow similar monthly patterns, although Command Area 3 consistently leads the city in both violent and property crime, on average accounting for 37% of total reports.
  • Violent crime reports peak on Sunday while property crime reports peak on Friday.
  • Property crimes were reported on the Friday before Memorial Day (5/31) more than any other holiday followed by the Friday before Christmas eve(12/24). While most violent crimes were reported on Halloween (10/31) followed by Labor Day (9/6).
  • Crime across the city varied in a similar pattern by month until November when Command Area 3 saw a significant drop not experienced in the other areas.
