Police Data Initiative

Police Data Initiative


Chief Tabor and the Fayetteville Police Department are committed to policing though progressive thinking. In December of 2014, Former President Obama launched the Task Force on 21st Century Policing to understand challenges to policing and help communities identify ways to improve law enforcement and community engagement. The Task Force recommended departments use data and technology to build community trust.  The Police Data Initiative was mobilized to accelerate open data transparency and analysis to increase community trust.  The Fayetteville Police Department is providing this data on our website in the open data format recommended by the Police Data Initiative.

Criteria of a Hate Crime

The FBI Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program collects hate crime data regarding criminal offenses motivated, in whole or in part, by the offenders bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity. Due to the difficulty of ascertaining the offender’s subjective motivation, bias is to be reported only if investigation reveals sufficient objective facts to lead a reasonable and prudent person to conclude that the offender's actions were motived, in whole or in part, by bias.
