I posted on this in the fall but wanted to update this site with the Takoma Park Police Department's new data on crime in the City. 2011 was another year of falling crime, overall, in the City. In 2009, we had 764 crimes reported. In 2010, there were 653 crimes. In 2011, that figure dropped to 565 crimes. Any crime is still a bad thing but I thought this data from our Police Department's crime analyst would provide Ward 2 residents with a context around which to evaluate crime in the City.
