DuPage County Launches Sheriff’s Crime Data Transparency Portal
DuPage County has launched a Transparency and Crime Statistics Portal, which will provide crime data from the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office.
The portal, which can be found at dupagesheriff-transparency-dupage.hub.arcgis.com, pulls records from the Police Records Management System and is currently only pulling data from the Sheriff’s Office. The data provides an overview of crime data in a particular area but does not give specific addresses or information about victims.
“This important initiative will provide residents with accurate local crime data, while also highlighting the critical work law enforcement provides in keeping our communities safe,” said Judicial and Public Safety Committee Chairwoman Julie Renehan.
“We’re always looking for ways to increase transparency at the County. This is a great first step and the County will continue to look for additional avenues to provide data to residents,” said Ashley Selmon, Technology Committee Chairwoman.
While the portal only has Sheriff’s Office data, the County will look at expanding the portal to be available to municipalities.
