Notes about Crime Data
The monthly crime data presented here reflect preliminary crime data for most Part I felony crimes as they were known at the time of original publication and are not official crime statistics. Preliminary crime data often change at a later date due to further investigation and /or updated classification before they become official crime statistics. In addition, information presented here may include human error.
Some data presented here are organized by “Platoons,” which represent the “Overnight,” “Day,” and “Early Night” shifts. Definitions for the three Platoons are as follows, displayed in military time:
- Platoon 1 = 01:00 to 08:59 (“Midnight” / “Overnight” shift)
- Platoon 2 = 09:00 to 16:59 (“Day” shift)
- Platoon 3 = 17:00 to 00:59 (“Early Night” shift)
