In order to obtain the information, you will need to determine which area of the city you wish to research. Here are the steps you need to follow:



  • Step One
    Choose the area of Houston you wish to research from the clickable, graphic map below or from the list.

Each beat is described in detail, with general street boundaries and landmarks / neighborhoods, ZIP codes that are within that beat, a detailed map, and a text description of the boundaries of the beat.

Notes:


  • The Houston Police Department does not recommend raw data comparisons be made between police beats. This web site does not provide a comparative analysis of the various beats.
  • If you plan to print out the crime statistic tables, for best results, choose the "landscape" orientation from the properties menu in your printer dialogue box.
  • ZIP code boundaries and police beat boundaries do not correspond. ZIP code boundaries may overlap beat boundaries and there may be several beats within several ZIP codes and vice versa. ZIP codes are provided only as a reference.
  • Each month's statistics are posted by the end of the following month
