Violence and Victimization Trends

This dashboard explores violent crime victimizations over time, specifically within the past 5 years. Violent crimes are defined by the FBI as "those offenses which involve force or the threat of force." Based on CPD offense reporting practices, this dashboard expanded the FBI violent crime definition to include: fatal shootings, non-fatal shootings, non-shooting homicides, aggravated assaults, aggravated batteries, robberies, criminal sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking.
Using the filters below, users can adjust many of the visualizations in this dashboard to select date ranges, violent crimes, Chicago geographies (including Community Areas, Police Districts, Police Beats, Wards, Zip Codes, and Outreach Boundaries), and a focused geographic boundary such as Englewood or the 25th Police District.
