On a daily basis, the Boston Police Department posts a file to the City of Boston's Open Data Hub containing a subset of the fields present in the department's crime incident report system.
If you are using this data directly for analysis, you should note that a given incident number may appear multiple times in the file. This seems to occur when multiple offenses are associated with the one incident number.
|OFFENSE_CODE||a key is provided for these on the data.boston.gov site|
|DISTRICT||one of the BPD Districts e.g. E13|
