Louisville Metro KY - Crime Data 2021

Metadata Updated: April 13, 2023

Note: Due to a system migration, this data will cease to update on March 14th, 2023. The current projection is to restart the updates within 30 days of the system migration, on or around April 13th, 2023Crime report data is provided for Louisville Metro Police Divisions only; crime data does not include smaller class cities.

The data provided in this dataset is preliminary in nature and may have not been investigated by a detective at the time of download. The data is therefore subject to change after a complete investigation. This data represents only calls for police service where a police incident report was taken. Due to the variations in local laws and ordinances involving crimes across the nation, whether another agency utilizes Uniform Crime Report (UCR) or National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) guidelines, and the results learned after an official investigation, comparisons should not be made between the statistics generated with this dataset to any other official police reports. Totals in the database may vary considerably from official totals following the investigation and final categorization of a crime. Therefore, the data should not be used for comparisons with Uniform Crime Report or other summary statistics.

Data is broken out by year into separate CSV files. Note the file grouping by year is based on the crime's Date Reported (not the Date Occurred).

Older cases found in the 2003 data are indicative of cold case research. Older cases are entered into the Police database system and tracked but dates and times of the original case are maintained.

Data may also be viewed off-site in map form for just the last 6 months on
