Year-to-year changes released Monday by the FBI in its preliminary figures on crimes reported to police in 2010 also showed declines in all four categories of violent crime in 2010. All categories for property crime went down as well.
Most criminologist attribute, the declines signify success for aggressive law enforcement and corrections programs and comprehensive crime prevention efforts. The size of the most crime-prone population age groups, from late teens through mid-20s, has remained relatively flat in recent years.
Violent crime last increased in 2005. Property crime last increased in 2002.
As a law enforcement official, I see a smarter cop on the street, more into prevention in the field and jails.
Good Job Law Enforcement Family!!!!
