April 2016 Emeryville Crime Report: Monthly dip offset by 19% annual increase

2 mins read

The Emeryville Crime Report for April includes 182 total crimes (down from 201 in March). Violent Crime fell 15% from last month but still outpaces the three-year average for April and remains on a 58% increase from 2015. In the Property Crimes category, a 19% decline in auto burglaries was offset by a large increase in Grand theft and Auto thefts. The earlier reported rape in District 7 was the first crime of its kind since November 2015.


The City of Emeryville is divided into small geographical areas that facilitate the Department’s efforts to tract crime and neighborhood problems, and allocate personnel resources to meet the service need. Crime statistics are reported by the EPD through CrimeReports.com. An archive of monthly crime statistics provided can be viewed on the city website.
