2022 Emeryville Crime Report: Data Totals Flat from 2021 … but do Residents feel more or less safe?

18 mins read

With the official end to the national Covid-19 Emergency Order earlier this year and unrestricted reopening of the local economy, we may be starting to get a sense of what the “new normal” of crime levels in Emeryville are.

Emeryville’s crime data is mostly flat from last year and is close to 2015 levels despite a steady increase in population over that span. Much of Emeryville’s high per citizen crime rate has been attributed to its daytime population which has been estimated between thirty and forty thousand people on a typical pre-pandemic workday. How these figures have been impacted by work-from-home policies and the city’s reported 23% office vacancy rate are not clear.

How accurate crime data is has always been in question as many have pointed out that not all crimes are reported. According to recent Pew Research Center data, only 40.9% of violent crimes and 32.5% of household property crimes are reported to authorities nationally.

Lower crime reports by authorities do not always reflect a higher level of personal safety residents feel as evidenced by passionate online conversations in neighbors in Oakland and San Francisco. Despite data that does not always support spiking levels of crime, many residents are more aware of crime and feel less safe.

Councilmember Kalimah Priforce, who sits on Emeryville’s Public Safety committee, suspects fewer Emeryville residents are reporting certain types of crimes. “In my conversations with folks, they have mostly checked out and have stopped reporting mail-thefts, vandalism, and other issues,” he noted when we reached out to him. “Although crime stats appear similar from previous years, people see and know that Emeryville feels ‘less safe’ ”.

Priforce is no stranger to violence having lost two people close to him while growing up in his native Brooklyn and he remains committed to addressing crime in the city. “Lowering crime is more than important to me – it’s personal.”

“Lowering crime is more than important to me – it’s personal.”
— Emeryville City Councilmember Kalimah Priforce

Despite aligning with progressives on many issues, Priforce is not among those calling to “defund” policing in Emeryville. “EPD has already done and continues to do reimagining work, so while other cities are focused on police accountability, my focus is the accountability of property managers on keeping their residents safe, and when they don’t, it attracts crime to surrounding areas.”

Priforce hopes to use his position in local government to help modernize policing. “Our community policing need better support and we need to modernize our crime-stopping tools for both the crimes of today and tomorrow,” he added.


Violent Crime Down 3% from 2021

Violent crime dropped 3% in Emeryville from 2021.

Violent crime has incrementally increased throughout recent years proportionally with the city’s population increase.

Robberies saw the most significant decrease with a 20% drop.

Despite some high-profile shootings, there has not been a homicide in Emeryville since 2017.

Property Crime Up 1% from 2021

Property crime in Emeryville peaked in 2019 with 2600 reports then plummeted following the pandemic to 1451 (-44%). Since, levels have crept back up but flattened and are hovering around 1900.

Auto Burglaries, which have always comprised the highest percentage of crimes in the city, saw the largest drop from 2021 (-45%). Petty theft has also dropped precipitously over the past year (-40%).

Grand Theft and Auto Thefts have spiked during this span rising 59% and 45% respectively.
