Crime Map Update

We have updated the crime map page with data from 4/13 to 4/26/09.  I was curious about how this compared with last year at the same crime graphictimes so I ran took the data for 2008 for comparison.

  • Homicide in 2008 = 1, 2009 = 0
  • Robbery in 2008 = 12, 2009 = 16
  • Aggravated assault in 2008 = 20, 2009 = 21
  • Burglary in 2008 = 27, 2009 = 9
  • Crimes with guns in 2008 = 8, 2009 = 7
  • Crimes with knives in 2008 = 5, 2009 = 1
  • Crimes using some other weapon in 2008 = 5, 2009 = 13

Well, we are down in homicide so far this year.  That is a big improvement.  Not sure where all the burglars have gone.  Maybe a convention somewhere.  We’ll see if they return on our next update.
