A common thought that runs through people’s minds when they are moving into a new area is if it is a safe place to live and how much crime is in the area. I’m happy to share with you that the Glendale Police Department makes the Crime Statistics and the Booking Reports public and online.
This is a great resource for any community to have no matter if you are new to the area or have lived in Glendale for a long time. You can see the reports on the City of Glendale’s website located here. Remember you’ll have to different choices, one for the crime statistics and the other is the booking reports. Both have great information so you’ll want to check them out.
The reports cover a large range of information that includes (but is not limited to by any means), various types of violent crimes, various types of property crime, special crimes which covers child abuse, simple assault, domestic violence, fraud, identity theft and vandalism. This is of course just a few of the facts that you’ll find it your visit the website and pull up the information on the website.
The information is great. I wish it was geo-tagged so that you could see where the occurrences happen but maybe that’s out there as well and I just don’t know about it. You’ll see that the Glendale Police Department is hard at work protecting the good people of Glendale. When you look back at a previous post from a couple years ago you’ll see that we were pretty outraged by the amount of traffic vs pedestrian fatalities and the common acceptance of those pedestrian fatalities. It’s really gratifying when you look at the numbers in the bookings reports and the crime statistics to see that the Glendale (California) Police Department is really tracking the problem and doing their best to reduce the numbers. I’m grateful for the Glendale Police Department and respect the job they do every day for this community.
