Is there a description for the CAD data fields included in CityProtect?

Yes. They are:

  • Identifier Number: Electronically generated by the Sheriff’s Office Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, this number catalogues an event reported to the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office.
  • Entry Date: This is the date the event was entered into the Sheriff’s Office CAD system.
  • Event Location: This is the 100th block address and intersection information. CrimeReports translates address data into block level data. This means that if an incident occurs at 123 Main Street, it will show up as 100 Block Main Street in the CityProtect application. Some location fields will be populated with “address could not be mapped” if the data was not geo-processed accurately.
