Public safety > LAPD releases its 2nd quarter report to residents

By The Staff

Los Alamos Police Department reported 30 larceny reports in the county in the second quarter of 2015.
LAPD put out its second quarter crime statistics Thursday. According to the police, there were five violent crime reports — crimes involving homicide, rape, aggravated assault or aggravated burglary — in the second quarter of the year, a slight increase from this time last year.
According to the police, offenses reported as crime statistics are determined by the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report Program. Offenses are classified as crimes against persons or crimes against property.
LAPD responded to a total of 44 part one offense complaints between April and June, which was down by nearly half from the same period in 2014.
Of the violent crimes, four of the five were classified as aggravated assault. There was one reported rape case in the county in the second quarter.
While the larceny category — defined as the unlawful taking of goods from another person — was by far the most active category last quarter, there was also a significant drop in the total number, from 64 reported cases a year ago to 30 in 2015.
It was also a slight drop from the first quarter of 2015, when 37 cases were reported to police.
In 2014, there was a total of 80 part one crimes responded to by police.
In the report, LAPD thanked residents and community partners for working with police “to problem solve issues and developing solutions that improve our quality of life.”
