LAPD News:

Los Alamos Chief of Police Dino Sgambellone has released crime statistics for the second quarter of 2016, which were compiled by the Records Section of the Los Alamos Police Department.

Offenses reported as crime statistics are determined by the FBI Uniform Crime Report Program and are classified as crimes against persons (violent crime) and crimes against property. The offenses of murder (homicide), rape, robbery and aggravated assault make up the violent crime category. The offenses of arson, burglary, larceny, and auto theft make up the property crime category. Both of these categories combined are referred to as Part I Offenses.

During the second quarter of 2016, officers responded to a total of 40 overall Part 1 Offense complaints, which represents a 15 percent decrease as compared to 47 offenses during the same period in 2015. 

Violent crime decreased 40 percent from five offenses in 2015 to three in 2016. Property crime decreased by 12 percent from 42 in 2015 to 37 in 2016. Total Part 1 Crime year to date remains flat as compared to 2015.
