The West Fargo Police Department is launching a one-stop, crime data dashboard for the public. The dashboard combines statistics and public information and places them into one easily accessible location. The information is formatted in a series of in-depth dashboards and provides a visual representation of the statistics.
“The goal of the dashboard is to provide greater transparency while strengthening trust with the residents of our community,” said West Fargo Police Chief Denis Otterness. “Our department is committed to strengthening relationships with all residents while finding innovative solutions to keep our city safe.”
The dashboard currently lists crime statistics, calls for service, year-to-date counts, neighborhood crime maps and crime heat maps. Statistics provided are closed investigations. The information will update regularly and is subject to change. No open investigations are listed on the transparency dashboard.
The West Fargo Police Department will continue to update and adapt the information the dashboard provides throughout the year. The dashboard will continue to evolve to include additional statistics as information becomes available.
The police transparency dashboard is available through the West Fargo Police Department’s website.
