Monthly Crime Stats - September 2022 (revised) and October 2022

The monthly crime statistics for beats 12Y and 13X, covering October 2022 and September 2022 (revised 11/8/22), are now available on http://rockridgencpc.com, under Resources > Crime Stats and Maps > Rockridge Crime Trends 2021-2022.  Here’s a direct link to the page:

Crime Stats September 2022 (revised) https://tinyurl.com/ywj7zswy 

Crime Stats October 2022 https://tinyurl.com/3r9xwtzh

The October report, being the first download, shows many fewer crimes than we’ll see next month.  I really don’t believe that there were no reports of vandalism (quality of life) in 13X during October but that’s what the numbers say.  The total for both beats in October was 44 reported crimes.  Read the header for all the numbers; the largest number of reports was in property crimes (auto related), 19 in 12Y and 5 in 13X.  All other categories had 5 or fewer reports.  October did have 2 incidents with multiple charges:  one was a combination of criminal threats with intent to terrorize (crimes against the person) and exhibiting a deadly weapon (not a firearm), which classifies as other because it was just exhibited, no one was shot.  The other was a combination of burglary (forcible entry) and vandalism.

The revised September report is much larger.  The original September report had a total of 48 reports for 12Y and 12 for 13X (total for both, 60), all categories had 10-15 reports or less.  The revised September report had 87 reports in 12Y and 17 in 13X, a total for both beats of 104 reports.  Read the header for all the numbers.  Both categories of property crimes had around 20-21 reports in 12Y and 5-6 reports in 13X.  The big category was quality of life (vandalism) with 31 reports in 12Y (6 reports in 13X).  There were no incidents with multiple charges in either September report.

If you live in 13X, you may have noticed that the original September report showed one homicide in that beat, and the revised September report didn’t.  I followed that up.  The incident was on Oakwood Drive,  which is in beat 13Z, not 13X.  Someone in the intervening month identified the error and corrected the report in the database.

 

Monthly Crime Stats - August 2022 (revised) and September 2022

The monthly crime statistics for beats 12Y and 13X, covering September 2022, and August 2022 (revised 10/7/22), are now available on http://rockridgencpc.com,  under Resources > Crime Stats and Maps > Rockridge Crime Trends 2021-2022.  Here’s a direct link to the page:

Crime Stats August 2022 (revised)  https://tinyurl.com/2kenpdb4

Crime Stats September 2022  https://tinyurl.com/bdfn5js2

The September report, as usual, shows many fewer incidents than will appear next month, 48 incidents in 12Y and 12 in 13X.  12Y had no more than 13 incidents in any category, although the number of crimes against the person (10) was a little higher than I would expect.  13X had no more than 5 incidents in any category.  There were no incidents with multiple charges in the initial reports.  We’ll see what the November download contains.

The original August report had 48 reports in 12Y and 19 in 13X, with the bulk of incidents in the 2 property crime categories.  13X had 4 crimes against the person.  The revised report had 96 reports in 12Y and 25 in 13X, with 7 crimes against the person in 12X and 3 in 13X.  I checked both lists, and one original 13X crime against the person was on Grizzly Peak Blvd.  That was undoubtedly removed from the revised report because Grizzly Peak Blvd. isn’t in beat 13X – it’s above highway 13, which is the eastern boundary of 13X.  Otherwise, the revised August report was heavy on both types of property crimes (more in auto-related crimes) in both beats.  12Y had 30 quality of life reports and 13X had 5, all vandalism.  13X had 2 incidents of multiple reports for the same incident, both auto-related property crimes; one incident had a felony violation of probation and the other had an assault charge. 

Full details are in the report including a summary of reports in both beats in the header.  If you try to research this yourself, remember that it takes a full month for a full set of reports for a given beat to appear in the 90 day download; you can’t rely on a download within a few days of the 30th/31st.

Monthly Crime Stats - June 2022 (revised) and July 2022

Crime Stats June 2022 (revised)

Crime Stats July 2022

 There is still a problem with the OPD crime reports data feed – the information I get for our 2 beats on the 5th of a month, for the previous month, is absurdly small.  I can only get full information for a month by waiting an extra month for the download; at that point I get what looks like the crime reports I’m used to seeing for 12Y and 13X.  I’m still trying to find someone in the Oakland IT department to report this to.

June was a much busier month than the original report showed.  Crimes against the person were not very numerous and numbers didn’t change much; there were none in 13X in either report, and 12Y reports increased from 4 to 5.  As usual, our primary issue in the Rockridge beats is property crime and vandalism.  General property crime went from 8 and 2 (12Y and 13X) to 23 and 7.  Auto-related property crimes increased from 11 and 0 to 21 and 1; and quality of life crimes (all vandalism) increased from 17 and 3 to 43 and 11!  The total number of reported crimes from 12Y and 13X increased from 40 and 5 (initial report) to 95 and 19.  The original June report included 2 incidents in 12Y with multiple charges (one burglary with attempted vehicle theft and one tampering with a vehicle plus a dangerous weapon and GBI); the revised June report added a 3rd multiple charge incident (auto burglary and vandalism).

I include a report for July, although as usual it is so skimpy that I know the numbers will increase in early September.  The total number of reported crimes from 12Y and 13X for July was 46 and 8, including no crimes against the person in 13X, and only 1 report of vandalism there.  As usual, the high numbers are in property crime and auto-related property crime – low to middle teens in 12Y and 3-5 in 13X.  Small as it was, the July report included 3 incidents in 12Y with multiple charges (fighting/vandalism/deadly weapon, battery on a spouse or date/dangerous weapon, and burglary/possess burglary tools/felony violation of probation).  I expect these numbers to increase in September.

If any reader has contacts in Oakland’s IT department whom I could talk to, please reach out to me.  I’ve fairly definitely established that this data feed is managed by city IT and not by the Police Department.  Last month I suggested that people might not be reporting some crimes (and I believe that may still be so).  But based on what I’m seeing, there’s definitely some kind of delay in populating reported data into the feed.
