August 2018 Neighborhood Crime Review

September 19, 2018 in Current News by fpsesafety

The following post is from: Safety & Security

I’ll get straight to the point: the news for crime is not great this month.  Crime is up in Forest Park Southeast for the month of August and up overall this year.  Keep in mind, though, that a single month of data does not necessarily indicate a long term trend.  See below for some summary stats:

  • 20 Total Crimes
    • 5.26% increase when compared to August 2017 (19 crimes)
      • Increased: assault, larceny
      • Decreased: burglary, robbery
      • No change: auto theft
    • 5 crimes against persons in August 2018 (4 assaults and 1 robbery)
      • 25.00% increase compared to August 2017 (4 crimes)
    • Crime occurred most frequently on Fridays.
  • 121 total crimes so far in 2018
    • 5.22% increase when compared to this point in 2017. (134 crimes)
      • Increased: assault, homicide, rape
      • Decreased: auto theft, burglary, larceny, robbery
      • No change: arson
    • 74.07% increase compared to this point in 2017 (27 crimes)

About National Night Out

From the NNO website:

“National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.”

Our event in Chouteau Park will be our neighborhood’s official national night out event.  Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, and come join us in promoting a safer FPSE community!
