Crime Reports

The crimereports sensor allows one to track reported incidents occurring in a given area. Incidents include anything reported to Crime Reports. Your regional emergency services may or may not report data. The sensor only counts incidents from the current day.


To enable this sensor, add the following lines to your configuration.yaml. Your radius should be of sufficient size to capture incidents in your area.

  - platform: crimereports
    radius: RADIUS

Crime Reports captures all incidents in a region defined by a square shape. Home Assistant zones are circular. Therefore, the region defined by a Home Assistant zone in a Crime Reports context is a square that is big enough to fit the zone circle. Practically, this means some incidents may be captured that are outside your zone.
