Today, the Redmond Police Department launched two dashboards to give the public access to historical and current data on crime within the City of Redmond.
The Use-of-Force Dashboard provides data from incidents where force was used by Redmond police officers.
The School Resource Officer Dashboard provides data regarding calls for service involving the School Resource Officer along with arrest data related to schools in Redmond within the Lake Washington School District.
The visuals in the dashboards are interactive and users may select the year or years they want to view the data. The data in the dashboards is updated nightly and reflect information available at the time of the update.
“These public-facing dashboards reflect my unwavering commitment to increased transparency and will help keep community members informed about what is happening in the community,” said Chief Darrell Lowe. “These dashboards will provide additional layers of transparency and strengthen community trust in our department.”
Development of the dashboards was informed by industry best practices for transparency and accountability. The dashboards are available at https://www.redmond.gov/673/Dashboards-Statistics-Crime-Map.
