Crime reports in Emeryville saw gradual increases during the first half of 2021 according to data provided by the Emeryville Police Department.
The report totals are still well short of pre-pandemic levels and the increases are anticipated as more workers, shoppers and travelers return to their normal cadence.
Crime reports dropped precipitously at the start of the pandemic amid retail closures and lock-down orders. A -69% drop in auto burglaries and -45% drop in robberies were the primary drivers of a 44% drop from 2019 to 2020.
