Crime Statistics From Secuirty Sales & Integration

Hackett Security would like to report the following statistics from Security Sales & Integration:

There were 1.8-percent fewer robberies nationwide in 2003 compared to 2002, continuing a two-year downward trend. More than 43 percent of robberies took place on streets or highways, while 14 percent were committed in residences. Comparatively speaking, bank robberies accounted for a small percentage — 2 percent — of robberies in the U.S. in 2003.

While there was an increase in burglaries nationwide for the third-straight year, the increase was slight — 2,212 more burglaries in 2003 than 2002 for a 0.1-percent increase. Residential burglaries accounted for 66 percent of 2003 burglaries and, contrary to popular belief, more residential burglaries took place during daylight hours than at night.

Some Crime Statistics:

Every 22.8 Seconds in the U.S. One Violent Crime
