Final 2010 Crime Rates

The final numbers are in for 2010 crimes.  In a nutshell, we’re much lower than the national average for cities our size.  We’re higher in rapes and aggravated assaults, but lower in everything else – especially robbery and auto theft.

Notice this doesn’t include drug crimes.  That’s because they aren't tracked the same way.  Practically all reported drug crimes are the result of arrest, not illegal drug use.  So it isn’t a useful comparison.

As a side note, we're making a ton of drug arrests.  Check out our press releases and you’ll see what I mean.
