Crime Declines From 09

Back in January, I noted here that the Maplewood Police Department reported a broad decline in crime in 2009 compared to 2008. The city manager this past week passed along information on the crime statistics for the first half of 2010, which so far show further declines:

The Police Department traditionally tracks the following crime categories on a monthly basis. Others are tracked annually. Of the seven categories listed, in a comparison of the first six months of this year to the first six of 2009, we have seen across the board decreases. The percentage decreases, year to date, are listed.

Criminal Damage to property-28%
Theft from Vehicle-10%
Theft- .3%
Auto theft- 2%
