What is CrimePoint?

CrimePoint is a free crime notification service, using verified public data to notify you by email when a major crime incident is reported in your area.

1. When a crime is reported to the police, anonymized open data is published on the Toronto Police Year-to-Date Crime App.

Updated daily, the Toronto Police Year-to-Date Crime App is a public safety tool that provides location data for major crime incidents, including Assault, Auto Theft, Break & Enter, Robbery, Sexual Violation, Shooting, Theft Over $5,000 and Homicide.

This represents frontline reporting by Toronto Police Officers into actual reported incidents. Some details may be subject to change as cases are more fully investigated.

All data has been anonymized to protect the privacy of those involved.

2. When you subscribe to CrimePoint Alerts, you will be notified if a major crime is reported in your area.

When you subscribe to CrimePoint Alerts, you can personalize your notification settings. Simply provide an email address and postal code, tell us how often you want to hear from us and we’ll do the rest.

If a major crime incident is reported in your area, CrimePoint will notify you by email. Each incident is labelled with the approximate date, time, location and a Toronto Police reference number. Exact locations are randomly offset to nearby intersections to help protect the privacy of those involved.

The purpose of CrimePoint is to help raise awareness of criminal activity in our neighbourhoods, aid in our collective ability to recognize suspicious activity when we see or hear it, and highlight the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper authorities.
