Enhanced crime incident data available on Open Data BR

The Open Data BR team has upgraded the transparency and searchability of crime incidents in the Open Data BR portal. The BRPD Crime Incidents dataset now displays ZIP Code, Metro Council district, and crime prevention district information for every offense listed.

The team utilized location data and spatial aggregation tools to automatically populate these new attributes for every listing in the dataset. This new information will allow users to easily filter or sort crime incident records by ZIP Code, council district, and crime prevention district to better understand crime trends and activity in our community.
