Tracking Boston Police Department Incidents (ACLU of Massachusetts)

The ACLU of Massachusetts on May 28, 2020 launched a new data analysis tool for tracking incidents involving the Boston Police Department (BPD). The tool will allow journalists, activists, and the public to track BPD activity over time, mapping the location and charting the frequency of specific incident types.

Based on data made publicly available by the City of Boston, the new ACLU tool allows users to track BPD crime incident reports beginning in June 2015. BPD typically posts updates of its data daily.
