The San Marcos Police Department (SMPD) provides access to various collections of police data. We aim to connect SMPD with citizens and visitors to create a safer and more informed community.

Police Open Records Requests

The Texas Public Information Act gives the public the right to request access to government information.

Hays County Citizen Connect

Citizen Connect is an online tool that displays incidents and arrest in the Hays County area.

Low-level Marijuana Enforcement Dashboard

A map of the geographical areas, frequency, and outcomes of low-level marijuana enforcement incidents.

Cite and Release Dashboard

A map of the geographical areas, frequency, and outcomes of cite and release (C&R) eligible incidents.

Hays County Jail Dashboard

Data about the current and historical jail population, recent and monthly jail bookings, and the types of charges people are most frequently booked on.

Please view the dashboards with some limitations in mind: 

  1. Due to the nature of crime-related data, finalized, quarterly numbers are always changing as cases close or records are expunged. Because of this, please allow a small error rate of missing or extra data. 
  2. The San Marcos Police Department changed records management systems in August 2022, which may have impacted the consistency of logged data. Missing data or data attrition may be possible.
  3. Most relevant data for the following dashboards are housed in separate record management systems and servers. In the process of compiling this data, there may be "missing" or "duplicate data.”
