The Police Department reports statistics to the FBI's National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS), Texas Department of Public Safety, and to the members of the City Council each month. These statistics help provide benchmarks for us in determining the amount of local crimes being reported. To compare our department's figures against other agencies, go to the FBI Homepage and look for the NIBRS or Uniform Crime Report or visit the DPS Homepage for state crime reports. The Police Department also partners with LexisNexis CommunityCrimemap.com to provide up to date crime data and crime mapping. The LexisNexis Community Crime Map is available to the public and can provide historical data for the city, or a specific neighborhood.
