Baltimore dashboard shows safety metrics


A dashboard to track crime, arrests, conviction­s and other public safety metrics was recently unveiled by Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott’s administra­tion.

The Public Safety Accountabi­lity Dashboard will offer the public a view of police and court data broken down by neighborho­od, police district and crime types. It also will offer metrics around neighborho­od demographi­cs and the city’s community violence interventi­on sites, including Safe Streets locations and hospital-based sites.

“For the first time ever, folks who live, work and play in Baltimore have a clear view into what’s happening in our city, can follow along with our work to effect change for the better and partner with us as we carry out the Mayor’s Comprehens­ive Violence Prevention Plan,” Shantay Jackson, the director of the Mayor’s Office of Neighborho­od Safety and Engagement, said in a news release.

The data also links to arrest figures by criminal charge and offers a view of case dispositio­ns, compiled through Maryland Courts data.
