2015: crime down, policing less risky

December 24, 2015

2015 generally continues the beneficial trends in American crime and the risk to police officers. “2015 is on track to be the second-safest year for US police officers in history.” Though there is a slight bump in murders in large cities over 2014, it was not large compared to the long-term trend and overall violent crime is down.

If any of that runs contrary to frothing political rants you heard mid-year, remember where you heard them.
