I was offered a meeting with the Deputy Chief of Administration. We rarely interview deputy chiefs and generally only interview the police chief when it's a press conference.
After first telling me there was no problem with the crime-mapper data, the city then came back to me and said, "You were right. We've reviewed the data and there are problems."
ON JACE'S BLOG: What crimes are missing and how he used computer-assisted reporting in this story.
Some of the problems, such as 3,000 missing robberies, were easy to solve. The crime mapper now shows those accurately. Visit here for a link to the crime-mapper website.
