Latest numbers: Crime recedes in most parts of Minneapolis


November 20, 2018

Crime has dropped by double-digit percentages across Minneapolis compared to last year, a trend that observers are chalking up to improved crime-fighting techniques and better cooperation from residents in some of the toughest neighborhoods.

Downtown's First Precinct and southeast Minneapolis' Third Precinct have seen the largest improvements. Reported crime in the ethnically diverse Third, the city's largest precinct by area, receded about 19 percent, compared with the same time period in 2017 — driven largely by big drops in robberies and burglaries — according to crime statistics released last week. The First, which covers downtown and the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, has also seen a 17 percent drop in serious crimes like robbery, burglary and assault.
