Hi, thanks for sending this. This website’s publications show arrests data by county but not specifically for Santa Ana PD. Can you send me the info for Santa Ana PD specifically? It’s likely the info that was sent into the CA DOJ that they used to compile the aggregate county-level statistics.

Thanks
