Analysis of Performance
NOTE: This metric is in the process of being updated due to a data reporting change by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and this change will be reflected as of Q1 of 2022.
- This is a quarterly metric, currently reflecting Q2 2021 data.
- Measuring the rate per 1000 residents provides a contextual way to view the amount of crime occurring while reflecting changes in the City's population over time.
- Crime rates can fluctuate greatly when measured on a quarterly basis, due to seasonality and other factors. For this reason, Fort Collins Police Services compares the actual rates to expected normal ranges per quarter.
Why Is This Important?
City Organization Impact on Performance
– Fort Collins Police Services provides services and deploys strategies to help maintain community safety. However, the crime rate is heavily influenced by outside factors.
