SCPD Launches Monthly Activity Report

The Santa Cruz Police Department is pleased to be publishing a new Monthly Activity Report.

The Monthly Activity Report delivers information about police department activities.  It provides crime statistics, work volumes, Part 1 and nuisance crime, use of force stats and crime trends.  The report highlights a snapshot of the typical cases handled by Santa Cruz Police Officers.

Chief Kevin Vogel stated that “by providing this monthly report to our community it will provide a better understanding of the public safety issues in our City as well as the outstanding work that our men and women do on a daily basis.”

In addition to our Patrol workload, the Santa Cruz Police Department continues to support neighborhoods, community groups and business associations by engaging them in ways to protect themselves and their property.   Community policing highlights are included in the monthly activity report.

The Monthly Activity Reports are available on SCPD’s web page and social media sites.

As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency and accountability, the Santa Cruz Police Department also has in-depth Uniform Crime Report  (UCR) data from 2006 to present available on our website
