The information comes from the Chicago Police Department and includes where and when each crime occurred, the case number, which primary and secondary "type" each crime falls under (see below) and the type of place where the crime occurred (in the street, at a residence, at a bar or tavern, etc.). The information reflects incidents where the police responded and completed case reports. Note that a case report is not necessarily issued each time the police respond to a call.
Also note that, though many case reports are the result of calls to 911, this data is not a list of 911 calls.
