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

Here are direct links to the 2 reports:

Crime Stats September 2022 (revised) 

Crime Stats October 2022

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.
