In an ongoing effort to empower our community with public safety information, the Portland Police Bureau is unveiling an improved interactive dashboard offering data about shootings in the city. The new dashboard offers information at the neighborhood level so anyone interested may have access to the information most relevant for them. The dashboard offers three years of shooting data, updated monthly.

It's available here: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/81203

Users will see the home page with citywide and precinct-level statistics, charts, and graphs. Additional information is available by hovering your mouse pointer over the items. There is also a filter for shootings with injuries. If you click the tab on top titled "Neighborhood Incidents," it will offer a breakdown of each of the city's neighborhoods. You can hover over the map to get quick information, or click on it to see a graph showing trends over time. The data can also be saved in a PDF document that can be saved or printed.

The Portland Police Bureau Strategic Services Division, in collaboration with other divisions, developed this new dashboard in order to better serve and inform the community.

The Police Bureau continues to work with partners to reduce the number of shootings. Solving crimes related to shootings takes help from the community, including witnesses and bystanders to come forward and provide information to police. This can be very difficult for people to do, but is often necessary to start the process of holding shooters accountable, and interrupt the cycle of violence in our neighborhood streets.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 cash for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime and tipsters can remain anonymous.
