Violent crime increases for second straight year

Violent crime increases for second straight year

New FBI statistics show MI had an increase in violent crime more than double the national average. Though the violent crime numbers rose from 2015 to 2016, the five-year and 10-year trends show an increase from 2012 (up 2.6%) and a decrease from 2007 (down 12.3%). Overall violent crime rose 4.1% past year, while property crime fell 1.3% compared to 2015 figures.

The FBI statistics show the county's violent crime rate was 3.3 offenses per 1,000 people, about 1 percent lower than in 2015.

Violent crime jumped almost 15% in America's biggest cities a year ago, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced Monday, amid an increase in murders in large cities ravaged by gangs.

The new data that shows Detroit's violent crimes for 2016 total 12,842, nearly a full thousand lower than the FBI's number.

Violent crimes such as shootings and robberies rose 4.1 percent in 2016 from the year before, with homicides climbing 8.6 percent, according to the figures.

"We can start fashioning plea agreements that hold offenders accountable", Montgomery said, "but then mandate resource treatment near where they live because we're more aware of what resources are available in that particular region".

Rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults also increased nationwide previous year.

In terms of murders in the 10 largest USA municipalities, only New York City came close to matching the safety of San Diego, with a 3.9 murder rate.

The arrest rate for violent crime was 159.7 per 100,000 inhabitants, and the arrest rate for property crime was 420.6 per 100,000 inhabitants. Most agree the data do not show some massive new crime wave. Property crime, meanwhile, fell for the 14th year in a row, dropping by 1.4 percent.

MI not only saw an increase, but it was also more than double the national average.

A total of 17,250 murders were reported, an increase of 8.6 percent from 2015.

Likewise, New York City's violent crime rate has continued to hold steady or drop, even though it has overhauled many of its more aggressive policing practices in recent years, leading Sessions to call the city "soft on crime".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited the numbers the Federal Bureau of Investigation released on Monday for similar purposes, calling on law enforcement to work together across the country to fight "the rising tide of violent crime".

"It's not that crime rose across the United States", he said. The rate of serious violent and property crimes is at its lowest level since 1966.

Reports of murder or manslaughter rose by nearly 20.

Crime is down in the United States, according to data released by the FBI Monday.

While still struggling to get a budget in place, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Monday took credit for a significant drop in crime, including the lowest number of murders in the state since 1969.
