Roseville PD recently released data showing property crimes were actually down a full 9% in 2011 (2,945 reported in 2011 compared to 2010). While it would be nice to have an even lower number this is awesome for a city of this size and population (120,000+).
The police department’s spokesperson says property crimes far outweigh every other type of crime committed in the city combined, with theft of property inside vehicles being the most prevalent, and the majority of all crimes are committed by non-Roseville residents. Part of the deal in a higher income area.
Property crimes of this nature are not limited to Roseville. All of the surrounding PD’s report similar trends as far as percentages of crimes go.
While we’re still very safe here, things still do happen. Please make sure not to leave anything of value visible in your car while at places you will be for long periods of time like the movies or at the gym. That is the most likely place for this sort of crime to happen. And always bring your wallet/purse in with you, even if it is annoying or cumbersome (some advice I need to take for myself).
