Anaheim’s Crime Rate Continues to Drop

Violent and property crime rates continued to free fall in Anaheim, according to a report released this week by the California Department of Justice.

Anahiem’s overall crime rate dipped by nearly 10 percent, the report said. The biggest decrease? Vehicle burglaries dropped more than 17 percent.

“This is good news and more evidence of how real partnerships between the police department and the community are paying off,” said Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez. “It takes a village to keep a community safe, and we’re pleased that the effort in Anaheim is paying off. Of course we must continue to look out for one another.”
