June 2013 Charlotte Crime Statistics

Safety is a crucial element of our standard of living. It is also a major concern for anyone living in the greater Charlotte area. Our Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department works hard every day and night to keep crime off our streets. They have reduced personal violence to one of the lowest levels in 30 years, but it is impossible for them to stop every crime from taking place.
Much of personal crime prevention is aimed at making yourself less of a target to criminals. This is known throughout the security industry as target hardening. Target hardening can be as advanced as enrolling in a self-defense class or as primitive as turning the lock on your front door. Many Burglars will spend no longer than 60 seconds to try breaking into a home. Goods locks and good neighbors can be big deterrents to burglars. Making yourself and your property an unattractive target is a central theme of crime prevention.
 
The following year-to-date statistics are compared to January-June of 2012:
  • Homicide – 11.1% Decrease (24 Total in 2013, 5 in June)
