CJCJ released a fact sheet today using new FBI crime data for the first six months of 2013.

The latest update shows a continuing trend of decreasing urban violent and overall crime rates, with only motor vehicle theft showing an increase.

The new fact sheet provides a brief update to CJCJ’s January 2013 research brief, California’s Urban Crime Increase: Is Realignment to Blame? which used FBI crime reported data for California’s 69 largest cities, from 1992 to 2012

It also follows a larger January report that investigated Realignment’s potential impact on crime trends throughout all of California and found that there were no conclusive trends linking Realignment to crime. In fact, California counties demonstrate radically varied Realignment experiences, indicating that local reforms of policies and practices are more likely to yield positive public safety outcomes than broader statewide AB 109 legislation.
