Richmond Police Department Open Data
This Open Data Platform gives citizens and stakeholders access to a rich array of police incident data. We invite you to browse and share the data, build your own visualizations and analyses, and let us know how we're doing.
The police department values all human life; and dignity without prejudice to anyone. Vesting police officers with the authority to use reasonable force to protect the public requires monitoring, evaluation and a careful balancing of all interests.
Keeping Richmond's streets safe is a top priority. Officers must continually balance the readiness required of an emergency responder with the guardianship and problem-solving resolve of a community caretaker.
The police department believes community trust must be built on the foundation of a strong police culture that values integrity and holds officers accountable for their behavior and actions.
