Police Incident Blotter (30 Day)

Metadata Updated: May 14, 2023

The 30-Day Police Blotter contains the most recent initial crime incident data, updated on a nightly basis. All data is reported at the block/intersection level, with the exception of sex crimes, which are reported at the police zone level. The information is "semi-refined" meaning a police report was taken, but it has not made its way through the court system. This data is subject to change once it is processed and republished using Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) standards. The UCR coding process creates a necessary delay before processed data is available for publication. Therefore, the 30-Day blotter will provide information for users seeking the most current information available.

This dataset will be continually overwritten and any records older than thirty days will be removed. Validated incidents will be moved to the Police Blotter Archive dataset. Data in the archived file is of a higher quality and is the file most appropriate for reporting crime statistics.

This dataset only contains information reported by City of Pittsburgh Police, and does not contain incidents that solely involve other police departments operating within the city (campus police, Port Authority, etc.)

More documentation is available in our Crime Data Guide.
