North Oakland 2009 Crime Statistics

On Dec. 17, 2009, the Oakland Police Department presented an overview of crime in North Oakland during 2009.  At this meeting, Ms. Marie Mason, who provides regular crime statistics to the Yahoo news groups on behalf of OPD, gave a presentation.  The NCPC has obtained permission to post this presentation on the web site - click on the link below to see the slides.

Crime Stats & Maps

We currently maintain crime statistics in Excel, once a month.  See the list of links to Recent Crime Statistics on the right for data from 2015 onward.

The classes of crimes we use were invented by the NCPC to make things clearer than just using Penal Code sections.  Here is a general explanation of the classes:

a - Crimes against the person.  These are the big crimes:  Homicide, Assault (including threats), Battery, Robbery, Armed robbery, Domestic violence.

b - Property crimes.  Theft, burglary, shoplifting

c - Auto-related property crimes.  Vehicle theft, car break-ins, car burglaries

d - Quality of life crimes.  Vandalism, graffiti, public drunkenness

Classes e and f are quite rare. Class e (Other) is occasionally used for a failure to comply with a court order.  Class f (Pandemic related) has only had 1 instance since the pandemic started.

- Crime Maps - We haven't maintained crime maps since 2013, but this page has links to historical crime maps of the beats.

OPD Crime Reports

The weekly crime report spreadsheets which were once maintained on the web site are no longer available as the site has been taken down. 

The City of Oakland publishes weekly summaries of crime reports on its web site page Crime Statistics.  The page also contains links to current ShotSpotter data and to crime report summaries from 2010-2012.  However, these are summaries which do not show crime by police beat.

OPD still publishes a weekly spreadsheet of crimes reported in the last 7 days for every police beat.  This spreadsheet is the basis for the new Google Maps the Greater Rockridge NCPC has just published:

12Y - 1Q13

13X - 1Q13

The NCPC also publishes an extract for these two beats every week on the Rockridge Neighborhood Watch Network and RockridgeNCPC Yahoo Groups.  You can join one of these lists if you want to receive these mailings.  See our page Crime Stats Maps to see various ways to view crime patterns in North Oakland on the Internet.
