Public Safety Benchmarking

The dashboards below show how San Francisco compares to peer jurisdictions across performance metrics for violent crime, property crime, motor vehicle break-ins, and police staffing, using publicly available Unified Crime Reporting (UCR) data. While the Controller’s Office has made efforts to ensure that performance data and analysis is as consistent as possible across peers, benchmark comparisons are not always apples-to-apples. However, benchmarking results provide useful context for the public and policymakers to assess how San Francisco compares to similar peer jurisdictions and to identify areas for further research and awareness.
