Maricopa Police Department electing to report less information to the public.

Any move away from transparency is a sad thing. Using a proprietary system adds additional complexity and restrictions to the public and the press. Why not just publish the data in machine readable format for everyone – providing equal and fair access to public information? The data has to be recorded for internal purposes and the technological costs of recording and reporting the data has reduced 1000% in the last 10 years. The cost of publishing the data public is far less than the costs reported in this article and typically the mapping vendors will map the data for free when the data is published openly. Saving public funds and giving the public multiple options. Less costs and more choice.

Indianapolis Moves to One of the Least Transparent Cities in the US for Crime Data

We wanted to update you in terms of where the Indy crime 911 data feed is right now.

We’d like to first thank you for reaching out to the Mayor and Chief’s office about keeping crime data open and transparent.

It is our current understanding that the original data feed we were using to map crime in Indy was requested by the Office Homeland Security in Indiana. However, because of recent computer upgrades and budgetary issues, that data is no longer being requested and is therefore no longer available and open to the public.

From our perspective, running the most visited crime map in the US, Indy went from one of the most open cities in the US to the bottom of the rung. This is a huge blow for public access.

This data should be open and available to everyone as it had been for years.

We are going to continually reach out to the Police Department to request an open data feed and hope to have an update in the near future.

Please continue to express to your elected officials that you value open access to crime data for all members of the public and press.

Governor Pence’s Office: (317) 232-4567
