Anaheim’s Drop in Crime ‘Huge,’ Chief Says

Chief Welter

It’s not all bad news.

Despite one of the worst recessions on record, Anaheim’s crime rate continues to plummet.

Robberies? Down 11.6 percent. Property crimes? Down 15.5 percent. All violent crime? Down 7.9 percent.

“That’s huge,” said Police Chief John Welter, flipping through the FBI’s most recent statistics.  “You’d think that during a down economy – with people out of work and losing their homes – they might be out committing more thefts.”

Not in Anaheim.

Behind the Badge recently sat down with Chief Welter to discuss Anaheim’s crime numbers.

The Orange County Register published the interview on its Web site. To read it, click here.
