Police Launch Data Transparency Page

The San Mateo Police Department has launched a data transparency web page to include policing data, traffic collision information, and the existing crime map. Users can also request public records, obtain a police report, and access department policies and training plan through the police accountability portal.

The San Mateo Police Department continuously strives to be a progressive leader among law enforcement agencies. The department wants to ensure public information is accessible for review and use by members of the public. Access to public records is an important priority for us as we believe that public trust is essential to good community policing strategies and maintaining accountability.

Providing information online about the way we work and the policies that govern us is just one of San Mateo Police Department’s transparency initiatives. The ability to readily access public information encourages inclusion, keeps residents better informed about police department operations, crime trends, and encourages them to help us keep their community safe.

  • Citizen Initiated Calls

  • Officer Initiated Calls
