Crime Statistics for March 2018

The monthly crime statistics for March 2018, for beats 12Y and 13X, are now available on, under Resources > Crime Stats and Maps > Rockridge Crime Trends 2017-2018.  Here’s a direct link to the page:

Here is a direct link to the document:

The 2 types of property crime in beat 12Y have swapped places again.  In March auto-related crimes (burglaries and thefts) increased from 13 to 22, while other property crimes dropped from 23 to 14.  I’m concerned about the increase in crimes against the person in 12Y since January – the graph shows a steadily rising line, and March had 3 reported incidents involving assaults with firearms, and one where someone carried a loaded gun in public.  We don’t usually have that many firearm related crimes.

Crime in 13X were flat in March except for a small increase in auto-related crimes.

About Those Car Burglaries

I'd like to quote from today's column by Matier & Ross, in the San Francisco Chronicle:

What goes into the official crime stats?  Police responses and victims' reports.  A 911 call with no followup doesn't count.

Since Matier & Ross are in San Francisco, this is almost certainly San Francisco policy.  I don't know if it is also Oakland policy.  How much do we want to bet that Oakland doesn't use this policy?

Consider that.  You find that your car was broken into, or your house was burgled.  You call OPD (not 911 - call 510-777-3211, because this crime is over and done with.  911 is for crimes in progress.)  and tell the dispatcher.  You may even get an incident number.  If you don't also go to the police web site and report the crime online, there will be no record.  It never happened.

The crime reporting link is on the top of the front page of the Greater Rockridge NCPC web site.  I check it from time to time to make sure they haven't moved it somewhere else.  If you are the victim of a non-violent crime, use this link to report it to the police so it will be counted when they next assign personnel to areas of the city.
