What about stolen vehicles by model year?
The agency illustrated with a bar graphic the highest number reading 625 vehicles reported stolen with a model year of 1999.
“This dashboard only includes completed motor vehicle thefts that have the required vehicle data points, so the total monthly count on this dashboard is slightly different than the official NIBRS Group A offense statistics,” said a spokesperson for PPB.
Portland Police added that the official count of motor vehicle thefts includes attempted motor vehicles thefts and can be found on the monthly neighborhood stats dashboard.
