Overall, crime in the 2nd precinct is down since May 15 in contrast with the early May report.  Marcy-Holmes is still seeing more crime than the rest of the Second Precinct, but while incidents still follow the main traffic pattern (University and Central heading north, East River Road and Prospect Park in the other directions) there are considerably fewer reported bike thefts.  In comparison, theft from auto, theft of auto parts (catalytic converters?), theft of autos, burglaries and robberies  are now prominent. 

I’m pleased to report that the interactive crime maps are now functioning for me.   See for yourself at   http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/police/statistics/index.htm
