What is a crime report?
When law enforcement officers respond to a crime, a report is made and kept on file for future reference. Crime reports are public records. CrimeReports.com lets law enforcement agencies manage which types of crime reports (and which details on a report) are shown to the public.
How often is the data updated?
Law enforcement agencies control how often CrimeReports.com data is automatically updated. Most agencies choose to update the data daily.
"Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure."
-- Thomas Jefferson (letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823)
