Arcadia's Crime Drops in 2019

The Arcadia Police Department’s preliminary review of Arcadia’s 2019 crime statistics indicates that incidents of crime decreased again last year. Compared to 2018’s statistics, there was a 28% drop in Residential Burglaries, a 17% decrease in Robberies, and an 11% reduction in Assaults. Compared to 2017’s statistics, Residential Burglaries dropped 46% and Robberies decreased by 35%. As for Vehicle Theft, there was a 1% decline and general theft levels remained at the same level between 2018 and 2019.

“The crime reduction successes seen in this preliminary review are the result of directed enforcement strategies that provided increased patrols in areas experiencing upticks in criminal activity,” said Arcadia Police Chief Robert Guthrie.  He added, “The most important factors in this success have been the hard work and dedication of Arcadia police officers and support personnel, as well as the strong partnership between the Arcadia Police Department and Arcadia residents in working together to keep Arcadia a safe place to live, work, and visit."

Despite these successes, it is important to remind the Arcadia community to continue to be vigilant towards crime. Be aware of what is happening in your neighborhoods and businesses, and remember if you “See Something, Say Something”. Together we hope to experience another successful year of reducing crime in Arcadia!
