CrimeAround.us allows you to filter on different crime report attributes.
The date the crime occurred. We have reports going back to Jan 1st, 2001. Be warned, searching over multiple years may take a while to process.
Also, for each incident, multiple offenses can be reported, but the data we get only reveals most serious offense.
We also group crime types in to violent crimes, property crimes and quality of life crimes in the same way that the Chicago Tribune does. In order to accomodate all of the other categories of crime that these three buckets do not cover, we also added an other category.
