The North Houston District analyzes crime data to determine needs and allocate resources. Because the District’s area consists of two police beats and two law enforcement jurisdictions, data must be pulled from multiple sources to gain an accurate perspective of crime.
In addition, the Houston Police Department has advised against comparing patrol beats due to size and population differences. It is difficult to compare counties for those same reasons and because of inconsistent methods of reporting crime among agencies.
Therefore, we look at overall crime in the City of Houston and determine how much of that activity occurs in North Houston District.
