Why was CAD chosen as the data source for CityProtect?

While most agencies furnish data to the public for only those select incidents in which a report was created or an arrest was made, CityProtect offers a broader view of police-community contacts based on calls-for-service, including less serious quality of life call data. It is important to note that there may be multiple calls for a single incident in the Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system (as compared to official crime statistics whereby each count represents one incident). Also, please keep in mind that CAD calls-for-service do not always equate to a criminal incident resulting in a report or arrest.
