LAPD releases 2013 crime stats

-A A +A

Public Safety > Most violent, property crimes go down, traffic tickets go up

By Tris DeRoma

Compared to last year, crime is down in Los Alamos, according to a set of statistics compiled by Los Alamos Police Department.
The stats concern “Part 1” crimes, which include homicide, rape, robbery, assault, arson, burglary, larceny and auto theft. The stats are annually compiled as part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s “Uniform Crime Report” program, a program started in the 1930s as a way to track national crime statistics.
Sgambellone said he decided to release the statistics as a public service to the community.
“We have a low crime rate here and I believe the police department plays a large role in that as well as the community at large,” Sgambellone said.
Sgambellone said from now on, he plans on releasing statistics on a monthly basis.
According to a press release sent out by the police department, there was a significant decrease in Part 1 crimes in 2013 as compared to 2012.
“During the 12 months of 2013, officers responded to a total of 204 overall Part 1 offense complaints, which represents a 23 percent decrease as compared to 264 offenses during the same period in 2012,” read a statement in the press release. “The violent crime decreased from 60 offenses in 2012 to 44 in 2013, a 27 (percent) decrease.”
