FLPD Datasets

Police Data Disclaimer

This data reflects crimes as reported to the Fort Lauderdale Police Department (FLPD) as of the date of publication. Crime classifications are often based upon preliminary information supplied to the department by the reporting parties and as a result, offense types may be changed at a later date based upon additional investigation.  As this data has not been screened through FLPD’s quality control process as of the publication, data-sets may contain information not yet verified by further investigation or analysis.
NOTE: The Lat, Long coordinates for all data-sets that feature addresses have a random offset for privacy purposes. The offset coordinates reflect approximate - NOT actual - locations.
This data-set includes criminal incidents which occurred on the territory of the City of Fort Lauderdale, and were reported since January 1st 2015.
