Comstat Data • Delineates crime throughout Baltimore City
On page 7 of the data is the summarization of crime in the Northeast District. Violent crime as of November 26, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011 has decreased 16%. Property crime has decreased 11% over the same period, and Total Part I Crime is down 11% over the same period.
If you review the data for the other nine police districts, you will find some are sustaining single digit percentage decreases, and some are sustaining increases.

This is due to the good work of Major Darryl DeSousa, Captain Rick Rutherford, and the officers of the Northeast District, along with the communities of Northeast Baltimore. We all need to keep up the good work, and we need to support proven community based crime prevention programs such as the NorthEast Citizens Patrol.
