As you can see in the graph above crime numbers have been moving steadily downward since 2003. While we experience low levels of violent crimes like homicides and assaults, we do have our fair share of theft, burglaries and other property crimes. Working together with neighbors to form block clubs, email lists and/or phone trees can be an effective way to combat crime in your area.
