In some cases, the details of a crime report will be revised or refined over time including possible changes to the way a particular crime is categorized or the specific date on which a crime occurred. A single crime incident may include multiple crimes, however, the map and charts reflect only the most serious crime for each incident.

The locations of other types of crimes should be considered approximate.
