Police Call and Crime Information

The Glendale Police Department has three online search applications. These applications are for geographic areas within the city. Specific address information can be obtained by contacting Glendale Police Records staff at (623) 930-3100. Police Records also can provide copies of reports and accident reports. There may be a fee for this service and certain restrictions apply.

Calls for Service

Calls for service are those calls that generate some type of response from the police department. They may be handled by an officer(s) dispatched to the scene, a station officer taking the report over the phone or in the lobby, or by Communication’s personnel by taking an information report. If a crime has occurred, then an offense/criminal report is generated from the call for service. In either case, a report number is assigned and included in the total.

Crime Information/ Offense Reports

When a call for service becomes an offense/crime report, a Uniform Crime Report (UCR) number is assigned to the primary offense. The UCR standards are used to compare with local and nationwide cities with similar populations. The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) sets these standards. These totals can be viewed by a square mile and then further broken down by a quarter square mile.

Disclaimer: The calls for service and offense/crime report information is subject to change based on review, reclassification or change in case status. The Glendale Police Department is not responsible for misinterpretation of this information and makes no reference or judgment as to the relative safety of any particular area or neighborhood. Some data may not be displayed due to confidentiality issues or because the incident was not located within the city limits.
