Online Crime Alerts and Maps

The Elk Grove Police Department has partnered with LexisNexis® Community Crime Map to make crime statistics available to the public via the internet. The service is free to the general public, and allows members of the community to access statistical information that show locations of recent crimes and crime trends taking place in Elk Grove.

Members of the community can also register their email address with LexisNexis Community Crime Map in order to receive email alerts regarding reported crimes in specific areas or neighborhoods of interest to them. A description for the fields included in LexisNexis Community Crime Map are:

  • Date: This is the date that the event was entered into the Police Department's Record Management system.
  • Event Location: This is the 100th block address and intersection information. CrimeReports.com translates address data into block level data. This means that if an incident occurs at 8380 Laguna Palms Way, it will show up as 8300 block of Laguna Palms Way.
  • Event Type: Type of crime reported. (Information concerning incidents involving sex crimes, domestic violence and other offenses set forth in Government Code 6254(f) are restricted and will not be displayed).
  • Identifier: A report number automatically generated by the Police Department's Police Department's Record Management system.

The Elk Grove Police Department believes that LexisNexis will help members of the community understand what types of crimes that are occurring in their neighborhoods, as well as encourage residents to call the police when they see suspicious activity taking place.

Yearly Crime Statistics

We started participating in the FBI’s National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) and reporting NIBRS-compliant crime data to the California Department of Justice for submission to the FBI in November 2021. As the new national data collection standard, NIBRS captures details on victims, known offenders, relationships between victims and offenders, arrestees, property, and drugs involved in crimes for up to 10 offenses within an incident, representing a substantial shift in the way we report crime.
 
Implemented to improve the overall quality of crime data collected by law enforcement, NIBRS captures details on each single crime incident—as well as on separate offenses within the same incident—including information on victims, known offenders, relationships between victims and offenders, arrestees, and property involved in crimes.
 
Unlike data reported through the UCR Program’s traditional Summary Reporting System (SRS)—an aggregate monthly tally of crimes—NIBRS goes much more profound because of its ability to provide circumstances and context for crimes like location, time of day, and whether the incident was cleared.
 
We began reporting NIBRS-compliant crime data to the California Department of Justice for submission to the FBI on November 1, 2021.
 
Transitioning to NIBRS will enable us to give context to specific public safety problems. In the future, this change will allow us to provide the community with in-depth information about victimization and offending.
 
As we transition to NIBRS, our historical crime statistics will likely change significantly. These changes are due to the new reporting requirements and do not necessarily indicate an increase or decrease in the impacted crime categories.
