I sent an email to Sgt. Hayward asking how we can get a hold of the information from the "Down Town" area (Central and Beasley neighbourhoods). I figured I should post that fact here so no one else emails him and we end up bombarding the poor Sargent with emails. What I sent is below and I'll post any response I get from him.

Dear Sgt. Hayward,

My name is Ryan * and I'm currently involved in an online collaboration with other Hamiltonians to compile and present actual crime statistics for the various neighbourhoods in the city. The hope is to provide an accurate, non-biased source of information about crime here in Hamilton. It was started with Ward 1 because Councillor McHattie currently posts the reports submitted by the Crime Manager for West Town on his website, ( http://www.brianmchattie.ca/page2.php?id... ), but unfortunately the information for any other neighbourhoods has not been made easily available to the public and our effort has been stalled. You can see what was done with the Ward 1 data at this link, ( http://raisethehammer.org/blog.asp?id=15... ).

As the Crime Manager for Downtown I was curious if you knew how I could get copies of these reports (or even the raw data) for the two Downtown neighbourhoods you are responsible for. It would help our efforts tremendously and help to replace some of the long held myths about crime in this city with facts. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,

Ryan *
