Crime Down in 2010 for Prince George's County

The Prince George's County Police Department announced last week that crime is down 6.3% for the first half of 2010 versus the same period in 2009. Here are some statistics from the announcement:
  • violent crime down 11.7% (homicides down 14%; rapes down 10.8%)
  • property crime down 5.3%
  • robberies down 18.3%

Statistics also showed a decline in crime for Prince George's County from 2008 to 2009, although there was an increase in crime in Bowie for the same period. I still haven't heard Bowie crime statistics for the first half of 2010.
