Introducing the Drexel Public Safety Workload and Crime Data Dashboard
October 13, 2022
Dear Members of the Drexel Community,
As part of our ongoing efforts to strengthen the relationship between the Drexel University Police Department (DUPD) and the University community, we are pleased to announced the launch of the Drexel Public Safety Workload and Crime Dashboard — a new way to view publicly available information about the work of DUPD.
While most of the information displayed on the dashboard has always been public through several different types of reports, the dashboard is designed to consolidate this data into a more easily digestible, at-a-glance format to help you better understand the day-to-day work of Drexel Public Safety and the DUPD. The Workload and Crime Dashboard displays three years’ worth of data in three categories: calls for service; criminal statistics; and arrests and criminal complaints. At this time, the data will be updated annually. The page also features Frequently Asked Questions for the community to reference as they review.
Please note that the dashboard reflects the workload of the DUPD and is not meant to provide comprehensive, real-time crime and safety information; you can find more up-to-date information in the Daily Crime Log and Fire Report.
This dashboard was created in response to 21CP Solutions’ recommendation for increased transparency and communication around the work of the DUPD, and it was modeled after the Workload and Crime Dashboard successfully implemented by the Harvard University Police Department (HUPD) after its own review by 21CP. We thank HUPD for their guidance during this project.
In addition to viewing the dashboard, we recommend that all members of the University community explore the Drexel Public Safety website for information about walking escort services, patrol boundaries, communications procedures, safety and crime prevention program offerings, and more.
You can send any questions, concerns or feedback directly to Drexel Public Safety at email@example.com or to the Drexel Public Safety Oversight Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
