Using statistical data extracted from the Vancouver Police Department's computer systems, the public can now access and download Vancouver crime data for 2003 to June 2011 on the City of Vancouver’s open data website.

Each dataset contains seven different crime types and each record includes information on the type of incident, the year and month it happened and a general location of where the event took place.

The seven different crime types available on the open data website include:

  1. Mischief under $5,000
  2. Mischief over $5,000
  3. Theft from auto under $5,000
  4. Theft from auto over $5,000
  5. Theft of auto under $5,000
  6. Theft of auto over $5,000
  7. Commercial break and enter

The City of Vancouver launched the open data website in September 2009 to provide the public with an online catalogue of data. Over 130 City datasets can now be accessed, with new datasets being continually added. Some of the datasets that are available online include City Council expenses and the number and types of business licences in Vancouver.

In 2011 the City of Vancouver was recognized by BC Business as the Most Innovative Organization in BC for its open data initiative.
