Police Sentiment Scores

This dataset was used by Chicago Police Department analysts to create the publicly available “Chicago Police Sentiment Dashboard” ( This online dashboard displays information related to how safe Chicago residents feel and how much trust they have in the police.

The dashboard and this dataset are updated monthly and users are able to view data citywide, as well as within the five detective areas and in each of the 22 districts. Users can sort this data based on year, month and location. Information is also available based on demographics, including age, sex, race, education and income level. The dashboard is meant to improve transparency as well as work toward compliance with the consent decree.

The first five columns indicate the type of organizational unit described by the records and which particular unit. Subsequent columns show either a safety or trust score for a demographic group. Scores are derived from responses to survey questions, with each response being a value that ranges from 0-10. Please note that Elucd trust and safety scores are NOT a percentage. A score of 65 means that average response to the questions is 6.5 out of 10. The final two columns show the time period in which the data were collected.

The dataset was created by our partner, Elucd (, through delivering short surveys to Chicago residents through digital ads. See for more information on the project.

This effort is one element of a Chicago Police Department reform process, governed by a consent decree executed between the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Illinois (OAG) and the City of Chicago. For more information on the consent decree, see
