The Police Report Log contains several fields of data. From left to right, those fields are:
Incident Number (commonly called the "case number"): a sequential unique number identifying the event
Date: the date the event was reported to police
Time: the time the event was reported to police, using a 24-hour clock
Location: the location of the event. Note that reports that receive confidentiality protections under state law (for example, child abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, and so forth) will not include a specific address.
Call Type: the type of event or primary type of crime
Dispo: the disposition of the event. The three possible dispositions are RM (report made; no arrest), BK (person was arrested and booked into jail), and CT (person was arrested and released on a criminal citation, but did not get booked into jail).
Incident Remarks: a brief description of the incident. If a person was arrested, certain information on that person will appear here (full name, race and gender, date of birth, arrest charges and if those are misdemeanors and/or felonies, and city of residence). Note that reports that receive confidentiality protections under state law (for example, child abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, and so forth) will not include incident remarks.
If you would like to look up the state arrest charges to see what they are, visit the State of California Legislative Information page and enter the criminal code (typically Penal Code or Health & Safety Code) and the numerical code section. If you would like to look up the municipal code arrest charges (denoted by "PAMC" in the Incident Remarks section of the Police Report Log), visit the Palo Alto Municipal Code online and navigate to the appropriate section.
