The Evanston Police Department invites the public to a presentation of the department’s new Police Dashboard. The Police Dashboard, available at, was created to increase transparency and public awareness of the department’s activities and operations.

The Police Dashboard provides information on the following data sets:

  • Police Activity
  • Arrests, Field Contacts, Victims, and Offenders
  • Traffic Stops, Citations, and Traffic Crashes
  • Weapons Recovered
  • FOIA Requests Processed
  • Use of Force
  • Part 1 Crimes

The presentation will be on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at 10 a.m. at the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center in Room 2404. Pre-registration is requested. The presentation will include an informational introduction, a demonstration, and answering of questions. 

The Police Dashboard is the result of a yearlong cooperative effort between the department and the City of Evanston’s Information Technology Division.
