These data are based upon preliminary information supplied to the Police Department by the reporting parties and are subject to verification. The Detroit Police Department does not guarantee (either expressed or implied) the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or correct sequencing of the information and the information should not be used for comparison purposes over time. The Detroit Police Department will not be responsible for any error or omission, or for the use of, or the results obtained from the use of this information. All data visualizations on maps should be considered approximate and attempts to derive specific addresses are strictly prohibited. The Detroit Police Department is not responsible for the content of any off-site pages that are referenced by or that reference this web page other than an official City of Detroit or Detroit Police Department web page. The user specifically acknowledges that the Detroit Police Department is not responsible for any defamatory, offensive, misleading, or illegal conduct of other users, links, or third parties and that the risk of injury from the foregoing rests entirely with the user. Any use of the information for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited. The unauthorized use of the words Detroit Police Department, "Detroit Police," or any colorable imitation of these words or the unauthorized use of the Detroit Police Department logo is unlawful. This web page does not, in any way, authorize such use. It should be noted that the total response time may not reflect the actual response time for a given priority call. For example, a caller calls about a Nonviolent Disturbance (Priority 3) at 10 AM. At 11 AM, the caller calls again to update DPD that the disturbance has turned violent or a gun has appeared. DPD then would change the priority from 3 to 1. If DPD then arrived at the scene at 11:10 AM, then the total response time would show 70 minutes instead of 10 minutes, which was the total response time for the priority 1 call.
