Alameda County Violent Crime Fact Sheet 2012
Released: March 19, 2014
As part of our work in supporting the Alameda County Violence Prevention Initiative we recently produced an update of our county Violence Fact Sheet. According to the 2012 uniform crime reports, Alameda County had higher rates of violent crime than California and the Nation. Over the past decade, 2003 to 2013, Alameda County has become increasingly violent while violent crime rates have decreased statewide.
2012 was a year of increased violence in Alameda County. Compared to 2000, the rate of reported violent crimes in the County has increased by 25% and is close to the 12 year high of 818 reports per 100,000 residents.
