Calgary Crime Statistics data visualized

Calgary provides police reports on the city crime statistics, but they are not easily consumed. With Tableau Public I have tried to provide insight in these statistics in the following dashboard.

Although Tableau Public has an embedding function, WordPress doesn’t appear to like it as the result was appalling. So for now, viewing the dashboard works best by going through Tableau website itself, linked above.

It shows general crime trends, details per community, year and category,
CrimeIncidentMap
the crime-to-population ratio for communities,
Crime population ratio
and allows users to compare up to three communities:

I am happy that the city makes this data available, but I would hope they did so in a more readable and usable format. I hope this dashboard will help exposing this data to the people in Calgary.
