Crime in the pandemic in these beats is definitely down.  April saw a total of 58 reported crimes in both beats, 39 in 12Y, 19 in 13X.  This is the lowest count for both beats since February 2018.

Unfortunately, the only category that’s up is Crimes against the person – robberies and sexual assaults in 12Y (from 8 to 11) and threatening phone calls in 13X (from 0 to 2).  Property crimes dropped a little in 12Y (19 to 17) and more than doubled in 13X (from 4 to 10).  Our eternal bugaboo, Property crimes (auto), dropped from 33 to 6 in 12Y (it was 78 in January!) and from 7 to 4 in 13X (half of January’s value).   Our Community Resource Officer thinks this is because people are not parking to dine any more, they just stop to pick up food.  Quality of life crimes (all vandalism) dropped by half in both beats (10 to 5 in 12Y, 4 to 2 in 13X).  No crimes were reported in the Other category.

We’ve added a new category, Pandemic related crimes – 13X got the only one of these, “REFUSE/ETC TO COMPLY WITH QUARANTINE/DISINFECTION ORDER/ETC.”  We thought we should track this.

If you see, or know about, a crime in your neighborhood, please report it to OPD.  If you don't tell them, they don't know.

The shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic has definitely reduced crime in the area, but not eliminated it.  The only increase in March was property crime in 12Y, up from 16 to 19.  Crimes against the person were flat in 12Y and nonexistent in 13X.  Auto-related property crime in 12Y took the most spectacular dive, from 80 in February to 33 in March.  That’s still slightly more than one a day.  Quality of life crimes in 12Y (mostly vandalism) dropped from 23 in February to 10 in March; in 13X they increased slightly from 3 to 4.

Wherever the car burglars were in June and July, they’re back in Greater Rockridge.  Fortunately, crimes against the person and quality of life crimes declined slightly into August in beat 12Y, and property crimes dropped from 19 to 11, but auto-related crimes rose from 26 to 30.  In beat 13X, both types of property crimes increased, from 3 to 7 for ordinary theft and from 2 to 6 for auto-related crime.  Crimes against the person were flat in 13X and quality of life crimes decreased slightly.
