Like most measures of social outcomes and neighborhood indicators, crime is not evenly dispersed across the city, so a citywide average does not speak to the reality of every neighborhood in the same way. Our beat level crime maps are powerful tools for examining distribution and change in crime across our city. In 2011 we saw shifts in crime in both the flatlands and the hills, and with some crimes that saw drops overall there were certain neighborhoods that experienced marked increases in these very crimes.

These maps represent crime reports that have been aggregated to police beats for a number of key crime types including robbery, shootings, burglary, property and violent crimes as well as homicides. To see a summary table of all crimes in Oakland compared with the past three years and our innovative Crime Calendars check out this post.


For official inquiries into crime data please contact the OPD directly. These maps are designed as tools for planning, strategy, staff management and resource allocation. If you are interested in which crimes are happening on your block or in other neighborhoods at a detailed level try Oakland Crime Spotting.

Please note that as of October 2011, Urban Strategies Council is no longer under contract with the City of Oakland and the OPD to perform crime analysis. We are publishing these maps and data as a service to the community who have expressed an overwhelming desire for better access to usable information and data on crime in Oakland.
