LAPD News:

Today, Los Alamos Chief of Police Dino Sgambellone released crime statistics for the second quarter of 2015, which were compiled by the department’s records division.

Offenses reported as crime statistics are determined by the FBI Uniform Crime Report Program and classified as crimes against persons (violent crime) and crimes against property. The offenses of murder (homicide), manslaughter, rape, aggravated 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 2015, officers responded to 44 overall Part 1 Offense complaints, which represents a 45.0 percent decrease as compared to 80 offenses during the same period in 2014. Violent crime increased from 4 offenses in 2014 to 5 in 2015, a 25 percent increase. Property crime decreased by 48.7 percent from 76 in 2014 to 39 in 2015. Overall year to date Part 1 Crime is down 23 percent from 117 offenses in 2014 to 90 offenses in 2015. 

While many factors contribute to crime rates within a community, the Los Alamos Police Department thanks its community partners and residents for working together to problem solve issues and developing solutions that improve quality of life in Los Alamos.
