Map: Ryan Pitts, Mike Tigas

After analyzing 6½ years of data, the Spokane Police Department launched its Focus Area Emphasis pilot project in April 2012. This map shows the 50 city blocks that generated the greatest number of calls for service; the SPD project plans to study the effect of sending emphasis patrols to the blocks highlighted in blue.

The SPD analysis focused on property, violent crime, and quality-of-life calls.
