This interactive map includes criminal offenses in the City and County of Denver for the previous five calendar years plus the current year to date. The data is based on the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) which includes all victims of person crimes and all crimes within an incident. The data is dynamic, which allows for additions, deletions and/or modifications at any time, resulting in more accurate information in the database. Due to continuous data entry, the number of records in subsequent extractions are subject to change. Crime data is updated Monday through Friday.

About Crime Data
The Denver Police Department strives to make crime data as accurate as possible, but due to nature of the reporting and investigative process, the accuracy of offense information cannot always be immediately verified. Data on this site are updated Monday through Friday, adding new incidents and updating existing data with information gathered through the investigative process. Crime data become more accurate over time, as new incidents are reported and more information is obtained during investigations.
Crimes that occurred at least 30 days ago tend to be the most accurate, although records may be included for incidents that happened with the past 24 hours. This dynamic nature of crime data means that content provided here today will probably differ from content provided a week from now. Likewise, content provided on this site will likely differ from crime statistics published elsewhere by the City and County of Denver, even though they draw from the same database.
In accordance with legal restrictions against identifying sexual assault and child abuse victims and juvenile perpetrators, victims, and witnesses of certain crimes, this site includes the following precautionary measures:
(a) Addresses of sexual assaults are not included in any maps, and certain identifying information about them is excluded.
(b) Child abuse cases, and other crimes which by their nature involve juveniles, or which the reports indicate involve juveniles as victims, suspects, or witnesses, are not reported.
Crimes that are initially reported, but that are later determined not to have occurred are called "unfounded" offenses. These incidents are excluded once they have been designated as unfounded. Multiple victims of person crimes are not identified in this application.
About Crime Maps
Multiple incidents at a single location are identified by a symbol with a number that indicates the number of offenses that have occurred near this location. To access the details of individual offenses, click on the symbol. A tabular listing is provided below the map that shows additional information about the offenses that are displayed on the map.
Map symbol locations reflect the property address, the mid-point of a block range or the nearest intersection. Certain crimes may not appear on maps if there is insufficient detail to establish a specific, mappable location.
