FBI shares data for 2011 crimes by community

Late last month, the FBI released its annual “Crime in the United States” report for 2011.

I’ve broken out the Snohomish County cities here. The information is self-reported by individual police departments, and the FBI strongly cautions against any ranking based on the data.

Sultan was not included in the listings. Not sure why.

In general, the FBI says violent crimes and property crimes in the U.S. are down but burglaries are up.

Cities with more than 100,000 people get a special blurb. Here’s the one for Everett:

In Everett, there were decreases in the number of rapes, robberies, aggravated assaults, larceny-thefts, and motor-vehicle thefts. The number of murders/non-negligent manslaughters remained the same (5) and there was an increase in the number of burglaries.

We’ve broken the data down to compare incidents per thousand people, which adds some context. Otherwise, bigger places with higher numbers of people tend to appear more dangerous than they may actually be.

Clicking around in the data, Everett’s pretty far down the list statewide in terms of violent crimes per capita. Granite Falls was higher, as were most Washington cities larger than Everett.

In terms of property crimes, we were pretty much in line with our population size.

For larceny/theft by sheer numbers, Everett was behind only Seattle, Spokane and Tacoma. Same deal with motor vehicle thefts, though we get pushed down a little in most categories when broken down per capita.
