The Baltimore County Police Department's final,official crime statistics for 2013 show reductions in overall crime and in almost every category of serious crime.

Chief Jim Johnson said these statistics -- which continue a years-long reduction in crime in Baltimore County -- are a testament to the quality of police personnel and the soundness of law enforcement strategies that involve identifying trends, understanding why trends occur and directing resources to the problem.

The Baltimore County Police Department (BCoPD) compiles crime statistics in accordance with the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. The final data presented here has been certified as accurate under the UCR system.

Here are the highlights of the 2013 crime statistics:

  • Total crime fell by 5.2 percent against previous five-year average.
  • Part I violent crime, the most serious violent crime, fell by 5.5 percent against the previous five-year average.
  • The number of homicides in 2013 dropped by seven cases – a nearly 26 percent drop – when compared to the previous five-year average.
  • Rapes fell by 19 cases and aggravated assaults by 258 cases.
