Crime in the second quarter of 2022 remained fairly flat according to data provided by the Emeryville Police Department. Reported Crime had been on a steady incline throughout 2021 as the city emerged from the pandemic but seems to have flattened.
Reported crime totals in 2019 averaged about 244 per month. Thus far in 2022, Emeryville is seeing closer to 196 crimes per month.
It’s not clear if these declines are related to tactics or just a lower daytime populations/few opportunities (e.g., fewer travelers, shoppers and office employees).
