Staying Safe at Home Starts With Your DoorsJune 17, 2014
The Milwaukee Police Department recently released a crime statistics report for 2013 which showed a downward trend of crimes except for those that are violent in nature. The Police Chief of Milwaukee said that the most concerning aspects around the state are homicide, assault and robbery.
The Milwaukee Police Department has released its crime statistics for 2013, announcing an overall crime reduction of 8.7% compared to 2012 and a 26% reduction compared to 2007.
Violent crime (homicide, forcible rape, aggravated assault and robbery) was up slightly (1.1%) compared to 2012 but is down 11.4% since 2007. Property crime (burglary, theft, auto theft and arson) decreased 11.2% compared to 2012 and is down 29.5% since 2007.
Overall, the crime rate in Milwaukee this year is also expected to be lower – given that the MPD is doing its best to reduce crime and violence in the area.
The men and women of the Milwaukee Police Department have been working diligently to put in place plans that will continue the reductions in property crime experienced in 2013 while significantly reducing violence,” Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn said.
