Utah crime data now available on interactive dashboards

Now with the last five years of data at your fingertips

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Public Safety’s Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) is making crime data for the past five years available in new interactive dashboards.

The new dashboards allow the public to view and sort data by jurisdiction or law enforcement agency to compare trends occurring in Utah. The data will be updated monthly.

Data on domestic violence, hate crimes and law enforcement officers killed or assaulted will also be available.
Data for most categories will be available on a rolling 5-year schedule.

Why the change?

For years, law enforcement has submitted monthly crime statistics to the BCI for publication in the annual Utah Crime Report. This report is usually published months after the end of the reference year.

Using the new dashboards, users will have access to jurisdiction-specific statistical information from any law enforcement agency that reports crime statistics to the state. They will also be able to compare information across jurisdictions.

“We are constantly looking for ways to be more transparent,” said Jess Anderson, commissioner of the Utah Department of Public Safety. “Transparency builds trust. This kind of easy access to near real-time data will help anyone better understand crime trends in their community. »

Crime In Utah dashboards will be available at bci.utah.gov.
