The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department is contracting with the Lexis Nexis tool RAIDS Online to provide crime reporting, community awareness, and data transparency to the public. Citizens can view the reported crimes on a map or in a table.

The Sheriff’s Department uploads completed crime reports to Lexis Nexis on a daily basis. The data does not include general calls for service or police activity where there was no crime report. In addition, some event types are withheld to comply with the law and to protect the rights of victims in cases such as sexual assaults, crimes against children, domestic violence, and calls that are medical in nature. Some case data may change if an ongoing investigation identifies more information about the crime.

Citizens can view the categories of crimes being reported and click on a specific incident to view the following information:
