Police Dispatch records
Thank you for this contact area. I'd love to see not just Dispatch records, but because there are times as members of the community that we need to verify a call we made to dispatch. I'd love to see the records for 2014 with time logs. This can really help us with resolve personal civil actions others bring against us. In doing so we will save the courts time, and valuable resources5 votes

Data on homelessness
I hear a ton about Salt Lake City's success in combating homelessness, but I don't see any data here to help me understand this story. I'd love to build a visualization and do some research here to promote SLC's innovation. Any data you guys have on homelessness and related service provision would be very valuable.1 votestarted · AdminNole Walkingshaw (Admin Services Manager, Salt Lake City Planning Division) responded
