The Ottawa Crime Map will display the last 14 days of data including Homicide, Break and Enter, Vehicle Break and Enter, Robbery, Theft, Vehicle Theft, and Assaults, however, you can change the date selection by clicking on the Calendar button located above the map.

Information on Sex Offenders is not displayed. The Supreme Court has approved the release of some information from the Ontario Sex Offender Registry (OSOR); specifically, the total number of registered sex offenders residing in a geographic area, identified by the first three digits of a postal code. Anyone wishing to access the geographic distribution numbers will have to file an FOI request with the OSOR (1-705-529-7474).
