Crime rate decline defies perceptions

8 Comments | Leave a Comment

Police Chief James Moore last week delivered some welcome news – quite probably surprising to some people – to the Rocky Mount City Council.

Moore reported that the city in 2015 experienced a 16 percent decrease in violent crimes and a 15 percent decrease in property crimes from 2014. Compared to 2014, the city also experienced a 16 percent decline in Part 1 crimes, which include homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, other violent crimes, burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft and other property crimes. That translates into 2015 having the lowest crime rate since 1978 and the third lowest since the police department began tracking crime statistics in 1977.

This news runs contrary to popular perceptions, with some city residents decrying the amount of crime they perceive to have become commonplace in the city during recent years. But in fact, the crime rate in 2014 was the fifth lowest since 1977, according to police department statistics.

Moore credited a few reasons for the recent decline. He cited the work of the department’s crime data analysts who study local crime trends and provide information to investigators to produce data-driven policing models.

The chief also credited the department’s community outreach efforts during recent years. The Coffee with a Cop program brings police officers and city residents together in a casual setting to better get to know one another. The department also conducted three Know Your Rights symposiums this year, which provided city residents with information to better understand police policies and procedures.

The reduction in the crime rate is not only good news for city residents, but also a testament to the daily efforts of the city’s police force. Keep up the good work, folks.

Crime

Some people always say the crime rate is down in Rocky Mount because the way crime is reported has changed. Others say the crime rate is down because the police have put so many people in jail over the years. Whether crime has been reduced or not a perception does exist that Rocky Mount has a higher than average amount of crime for a city this size.

Let's BE real and not rely on perception and bias

Where do you get your information? These comments show no respect for the rank and file officers. There is more information, transparency and accountability today than there ever was in the past. I am grateful to live in a city with this kind of progress.

I Agree

Let's get an outside agency to come in and find the truth.

There is more information than ever but if the information is false, what good is it? The headlines and the reporting in the Telegram don't jibe with the reports of the police department. There are violent crimes everyday.

I'm glad you are grateful to live here but it would be an even better place to be without all the violence.

I would love to see the Telegram compile a list of crimes it reports and correlate it with the Police Department figures. If they are the same, I will be the first to apologize.

Why don't you hire an outside agency?

Why don't you do what you ask the Telegram to do? Then we can correlate your opinion because that is what you are basing your belief upon. Convince other folk because you have convinced yourselt.

How do you know it's false?

How do you know it's false? It is easy to come to a false conclusion based on the grapevine. Social media didn't exist until 15 years ago, and it plays a huge role in promoting misinformation. My house was broken into 32 years ago as were several others in my neighborhood. No one got upset and called for an independent examination of the police. There is way too much irrational cynicism in the world today and not enough thinking.

Perception is often reality

Lower crimes rates in Rocky Mount are not the result of lower crime. It is the result of the way crimes are being reported. The SBI should be called in to investigate what is going on in the Police Department.

Our rank and file officers deserve the respect of the people. The distrust of the administration breeds contempt toward the whole department. This is a shame.

What we perceive as rampant crime in Rocky Mount can't be masked by false reporting. The people aren't buying it, nor should they be expected to.

Lmao

James Moore is joke.1
