The Medicine Hat Police Service gathers a number of metrics to monitor occurrence
trends. On this site you will find a dashboard of common metrics gathered on;
calls for service, officer activities and call types. The purpose for publishing
this dashboard of metrics is to provide the community with an at-a-glance data
visualization that displays the types of incidents that the Medicine Hat Police
Service responds to and investigates in an effort to keep our community safe.
This dashboard is designed to provide a snapshot of some metrics that are later provided to Statistics Canada for official tabulation. As these metrics are snapshots of a particular time, they do not include updates or changes that may occur throughout the course of an investigation. These statistics may differ from official data, which is reported through the Medicine Hat Police Service Annual Report and other Statistics Canada publications.
For official data please refer to Medicine Hat Police Service Annual Report.
