This report is later than usual because of a change in the data available from OpenDataPhilly. The amount of information has been upgraded. Previously, only the most serious crimes, Part I, have been included. The news data includes everything which gives a much more complete picture of what the police are up against. The report covers the period from January of 2006 to date and includes over 2,000,000 records.
