SFPD joins the White House Police Data Initiative

The San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) has joined the President’s White House Police Data Initiative. This initiative provides recommendations for improved police practices, including data transparency. For more information on the White House Police Data Initiative, please visit FACT SHEET: White House Police Data Initiative Highlights New Commitments.

SFPD is determined to build trust, engage with our San Francisco community, and drive positive outcomes in public safety. We hope to be as transparent as possible – not only with our crime data, but with information about our department and its operations. Please see below for our initial data sets.
