Oakland Crimespotting API

The service operates independently of the city of Oakland, Calif., and Oakland Police Department, but it repackages data from the city's own crime-mapping program, CrimeWatch. It emphasizes location-aware mapping of crime reports by date, type of offense, police precinct, and related details. Its goal is to aid in discovery of crime activity within the areas of specific homes, schools, and workplaces.

API methods allow retrieval of crime reports for specified crime types, police beats, and date ranges. Methods return reports with location information -- street address as well as latitude and longitude -- to aid in mapping.
Individual crime reports can be downloaded in a variety of formats, suitable for use in spreadsheets, feed readers, and more. All requests are simple HTTP GET, and there is no registration or authentication requirement.
