New Crime Data from BPD is Good News / Bad News

bpd-badge

BPD Crime Data released today comparing this year to last year as of August 6, 2013 was a mixed bag of good and bad news. Arrests are up but so is violent crime.

On the one hand firarm arrests are up 19% over last year but on the other, homicides are still up over 41% and non-fatal shootings are up over 9% compared to last year. While the number of arrests have increased Boston still has a long way to go from having one of the lowest clearance rates in the country (read more on that in our Wrap Up on “Dirty” Dan Conley)
