These crime report hot spot maps were developed for the Oakland Police Department to aid with intelligence-led policing efforts, to provide resource management support and to aid in targeting crime suppression tactics. These hot spot maps depict crime reports of: Violent Crime, Property Crime and Burglary and are arranged by Command Areas for the 1st Quarter of 2011. A hot spot is an area with a higher intensity of crime than the surrounding area and is useful as a visual guide to identify areas of high crime incidence.

Hotspots is a term that describes locations with more than one report in the time period (1st Quarter of 2011) or in areas where more than one report occurred in close proximity. While normally one report (incident) can include multiple crimes, these hotspots are computed using only one crime per report (incident), thus the actual number of crimes may be higher in the accompanying tables which show the beat level report summaries for each command area.
