Crime Data Dashboard

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office is now making available a crime data dashboard to the public through the agency’s website. The Crime Dashboard allows community members to access crime data by type, time and geographic area, as well as study historical trends and review specific time periods dating back to January 1, 2016, in areas patrolled by the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. This includes unincorporated Multnomah County, and sheriff’s office contract cities of Fairview, Maywood Park, Troutdale and Wood Village.

“Access to this great tool will empower the communities we serve, and adds transparency to the calls we respond to and the work we do,” Sheriff Mike Reese said. “Community members will be able to review call volumes, types and locations at no cost and at any time.”

The dashboard will be updated no less than once a week.

The data does not include statistics from the Cities of Portland and Gresham nor the Port of Portland.

Voluntary Security Camera Registration Program

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office is accepting voluntary surveillance camera registrations from businesses and community members as a proactive approach to aid in public safety and criminal investigations.

Knowing ahead of time where cameras exist can save investigative time and resources when a crime occurs in your neighborhood and may help solve and prevent crime. This police and community partnership has been successful in other cities and can help identify suspects, recover stolen property and solve crimes.

Registration of your home or business surveillance camera is completely voluntary and can be removed at any time. Registering a surveillance camera with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office does not mean police have automatic access or live feeds to your system; it simply means officers and detectives know where cameras are located so they may contact you to request access to the images.
