2011 Party/Music/Noise Calls Overview

Over the next few weeks the Santa Cruz Police Department will be analyzing calls-for-service in 2011. We wanted to open up the data to the community so you can see what types of calls we received during the year. It's important for us to provide you with a transparent look at issues that face our area. Today we are looking at noise calls (which include music and loud/unruly party calls). We broke down the calls by beat (you can click here to see what beat you live in).
