Brooklyn Park police are creating open data dashboards. The interactive tool brings you inside the department and allows you to see data based on race, gender, location and much more. The hope is to use this data as a tool to start or continue conversations with the community to help build trust and relationships.
This dashboard is one of many to follow that is in direct response to community questions about specific crime information. The data dashboard shows data from Jan. 1, 2017. The data is updated quarterly.
The dashboards are a work in progress and could change based on input from both the department and community. This is a project Chief Craig Enevoldsen is working on.
