Additional Crime Data Now Available on HPD Website
News Release from HPD, November 15, 2016
In response to community feedback, the Honolulu Police Department has added more crime categories to the mapping feature on the department's website. There are now a total of 15 crime categories available to the public. In addition to property crimes such as burglary, auto theft and vandalism, the website also includes crimes such as arson, assault, homicide and sex crimes.
“Our officers talked to many of the neighborhood boards and citizen patrols, and they told us that they wanted more information than in the past," said Chief Louis Kealoha. "Our world and our community is changing, and the department is part of this change. We thank everyone who took the time to contact us and make their views known.”
Crime Mapping was introduced six years ago in response to inquiries from neighborhood boards. At the time, the community’s interest was primarily in property crimes.
