Crime Increasing In America’s Suburbs

12.31.12 10:01 PM

Amid an overall national decline in homicides, murders in the suburbs and other areas not traditionally associated with high rates of violent crime are on the rise.

This, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal, is the result of criminals looking for easier targets outside inner-city areas where police presence has increased in recent years.

“They just shifted their operations,” Craig Steckler, president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, told WSJ.

The report indicates that about 25 percent of all homicides in the United States occur in suburban areas, up from around 20.7 percent in 2001.

According to a Federal Bureau of Justice Statistics study of the most recent data, there was a 16.7 percent drop in homicides in big cities due largely to aggressive police patrols in cities like New York and Los Angeles. But during the same period, homicides rose 16.9 percent in their outlying suburbs.
