Police Department Year End Crime Data

Posted on January 22, 2014 at 12:28 PM by Suzanne Iarla

Year end data revealed that in 2013 Part 1 Violent Crime was down, but Part 1 property crime was up. This is consistent with the region and the state following State AB109 Realignment efforts. While the police department has suffered from staffing challenges, we continue to use data, analysis, technology, and traditional policing to support the crime reduction strategies that evolve from the community oriented policing philosophy of our department. 

Part 1 Crimes   2013     % Change from 2012
Violent Crime          77        30%
Murder                      0         0%
Rape                           0         100%
