The monthly crime statistics for beats 12Y and 13X, covering June 2022, and May 2022 (revised 7/5/22), 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:

Why are you getting 2 reports? Because there is a problem with the data feed of reported crimes in Oakland. When I reported the May numbers in early June, the feed showed 54 crimes for the 2 beats, 36 for 12Y and 18 for 13X. I thought this was odd and said so. When I pulled the 90 day feed on 7/5, the numbers for May were 112 reports, 86 for 12Y and 26 for 13X. That is more than twice the number in the June 5 download! I’ve been trying to report this problem to someone in the city for an entire month and no one is responding.
To re-summarize May: crime in May was not down from April, it was up substantially, 112 reports for both beats against 74 in April. Crimes against the person were about the same (down a few in 13X). Property crimes, especially burglaries, increased in both beats, much more so in 12Y (from 19 in May to 38). Auto related property crimes were about flat in 12Y but increased from 1 to 11 in 13X. Quality of life crimes spiked in 12Y from 12 to 26, mostly vandalism. In 13X quality of life crimes were about the same.
And what about the June report? I include it because it’s there, but the June report on 7/5 included 36 incidents in 12Y and 18 in 13X for a total of 54. This is absurd, especially since the numbers for 13X include no crimes against the person and no auto-related property crimes! We should be so lucky. I expect to republish the June report in early August.
In last month’s report, I said I could only show data on crimes that were reported to the police. This month’s revision for May shows that you are reporting crimes to the police – the reports aren’t getting into the database in a timely fashion. I will continue to try to get someone’s attention on this. If you wish to use this report to complain to someone in the city, feel free.
