THE ST PETERSBURG CRIME DATABASE FUNCTION ON THIS SITE IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE. We set this site up in April 2009. The database worked until December 2011 when we had some hosting problems.
Many St Pete people would look at the site, even send in reports as if we were the St Petersburg Police Department. However, there was never any financial support and we don't have the resources to set it up again ourselves. We expected that we would get more support from the people of St Petersburg, FL than it got. St Petersburg has one of the highest crime and violent crime rates in the USA. You get what you deserve.

How Up To Date Is The Information Here?
We receive the data in the form of a text file called the "Sergeant's Log" from the Saint Petersburg Police Department on the first work day of the week, which is usually Mondays, with a list of calls for the week ending the previous Friday. So you will not be able to look up records more recent than the previous Friday. So, in no way can our service be considered a list of CURRENT events.
You may find that searches done soon after we have updated the database do not return all possible results. This is because we run jobs to fully index the new records. It may take some hours for the jobs to run to completion and allow valid searches including these new records to be done.
Note at this point, you may find duplicate records on the database. This is because the data sent to us by St Petersburg Police Department can overlap, with some calls reported in one week and also in the next. We are working on fixing this.
Our current data is for the period December 12, 2008 through to September 16, 2011. Due to database issues we are only allowing queries on data for the last 30 days.
For some reason the Police haven't included data for August 1-2, 2009. If you find other dates missing, please advise us. We also have the data for April 11, 2008 through April 18, 2008 for a special reason. While using this site please check out our unsolved case and contact us if you can help at all. If you have a request for data from a particular period since August 2007, please let us know and we will endeavor to load it for you.
