Police Call and Crime Information
The Glendale Police Department has three online search applications. These applications are for geographic areas within the city. Specific address information can be obtained by contacting Glendale Police Records staff at (623) 930-3100. Police Records also can provide copies of reports and accident reports. There may be a fee for this service and certain restrictions apply.
Calls for Service
Calls for service are those calls that generate some type of response from the police department. They may be handled by an officer(s) dispatched to the scene, a station officer taking the report over the phone or in the lobby, or by Communication’s personnel by taking an information report. If a crime has occurred, then an offense/criminal report is generated from the call for service. In either case, a report number is assigned and included in the total. About 25 percent of the calls for service result in offense/crime report.
Neighborhood Update is a new resource for the public to use to track calls for police service in the City of Glendale. It is currently being beta-tested, but will eventually replace the Public CADMine link under View Calls for Service above.
When a call for service becomes an offense/crime report, a Uniform Crime Report (UCR) number is assigned to the primary offense. The UCR standards are used to compare with local and nationwide cities with similar populations. The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) sets these standards. These totals can be viewed by a square mile and then further broken down by a quarter square mile.
Disclaimer: The calls for service and offense/crime report information is subject to change based on review, reclassification or change in case status. The Glendale Police Department is not responsible for misinterpretation of this information and makes no reference or judgment as to the relative safety of any particular area or neighborhood. Some data may not be displayed due to confidentiality issues or because the incident was not located within the city limits.
Crimemapping.com Crime Mapping Tool
The Glendale Police Department is trying a new web-based UCR crime mapping tool from the Omega Group called crimemapping.com. This new tool allows you to see point data of all UCR crimes reported to the Glendale Police Department for the past few weeks and you can also subscribe for automatic email alerts when crimes occur around an address you pick.

Bias/Hate Crimes Unit
The Glendale Police Department documents and tracks all Bias/Hate Incidents and Crimes. Victims should report any criminal activity to their local police department. Bias crimes threaten our society, which is built upon the strengths of its diversity. Bias Crimes not only victimize the individual, but also the entire community.
Bias/Hate Incidents are described as any non-criminal act, including words, directed at a person(s), motivated by a bias against a person or group, based on that person’s race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender or disability, including distribution of hate materials in public places and to residential areas.
A Bias/Hate Crime commonly referred to as a Hate Crime is a criminal offense that occurred and the motive for doing that crime is proven to be driven by that manifest evidence of prejudice based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender or disability.
To report either a Bias/Hate Incident or a Bias/Hate Crime that occurred in Glendale, please call
623-930-3000 or use the form below for reporting hate or bias type incidents or report material distributed with the intent to provoke bias or hate crimes, within the city of Glendale. If a criminal act was involved (theft, assault, etc.) please contact the police at 623-930-3000, to file a criminal report.
