District 7 in EB Reports: 2011 Crime Down 16%

by Captain Frank Mancini, Commander, District 7
East Boston

In 2011, East Boston saw a 16% reduction in overall crime. This reduction is the largest crime reduction of any other neighborhood or section of the City of Boston.

This follows a 5.5% reduction in crime the previous year in 2010. In the past two years crime has been reduced almost 20%. The overall crime rate in East Boston in 2011 was the lowest in at least 8 years, going back to 2005.

Looking at Property Crime in 2011, East Boston saw a 25% reduction in residential burglary, and a 47% drop in commercial breaks of businesses in the community. Auto thefts also went down 25% in 2011, and car break-ins were lowered 21%.

Looking at Violent Crime, or crime against persons, we saw aggravated assaults drop 6.5%, this followed a 30% drop in 2010. Robberies stayed about even in 2011 following a 20% drop in 2010.

Unfortunately we had 2 homicides in 2011, one suspect was arrested and another identified. Neither homicide was a random event, but in both incidents the parties knew each other and the general public was not in danger.

During 2012, the Officers of District 7 will continue to do their best to prevent crime with the help of the community.
