Over the next few weeks the Santa Cruz Police Department will be analyzing calls-for-service in 2011. Last week, we took a look at party/noise calls and bike thefts. Yesterday, we provided an overview of the number of injury accidents in our jurisdiction. Today, we are taking a look at violent crime data from Part 1 crimes provided in Uniform Crime Reports (UCR). UCR data is provided by all agencies as a comparison tool. It includes crimes against property (like burglary) and crimes against people (such as a robbery). Here are the stats (with a comparison to 2010):
2010 2011 % Change
Homicide 6 1 -83%
Rape 31 24 -23%
Robbery 120 113 -6%
Agg. Assault 396 343 -13%
Overall Part 1 Violent Crime Change from 2010-2011 = -13%
