Transparency In Policing

With a commitment to fostering a culture of transparency within the organization, the Mesa Police Department is providing an easily accessible portal open to the public. This portal will provide information to processes and data dashboards regarding operations and accountability. Maintaining trust and support are essential to good community policing strategies with the city we protect and serve.

Total Part I Crimes

The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program collects statistics on the number of offenses known to City of Mesa Police Department. In Part I, the UCR indexes reported incidents of crimes that are broken into two categories: violent and property crimes. Aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery are classified as violent, while arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft are classified as property crimes.
Update: As of January 2020, Mesa PD transitioned crime reporting to the FBI Unified Crime Reporting (UCR) Program to the new National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) format. As of January 1, 2021, the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) became the national crime data collection program. Updated NIBRS formatted crime data for calendar years 2020 and going forward is coming soon.
