BridgeStat - July 2012

While serious crime in Cambridge has risen 5% when compared with the first 7 months of 2011, when measured against the 5-year weighted average for this time frame, a slight 1% drop (15 fewer crimes counted) has been recorded. The majority of the increase from 2011 to 2012 can be attributed to the overall increase in larceny (8%), with 108 more thefts reported when compared with the first 210 days of 2011.

A detailed analysis of all statistics indicates that there were 99 additional property crimes recorded in the first 7 months of 2012 to register a 6% incline when placed against the 2011 statistics.
