 STATE OF THE PRECINCT:  October 12 review of trends mapped during the previous 2 weeks 

Between 9/28 and 10/11, 4 assaults and 11 robberies of persons were recorded in the 2nd Precinct.  Most crime in the 2nd Precinct remains theft from motor vehicle, theft of motor vehicle, bike theft.  Hot spots remain Marcy Holmes, especially Dinkytown, for all kinds of reported crime.  Prospect Park had the heaviest concentration of bike theft.
The following analysis is offered with no intent to diminish the impact of crime on its victims;  anyone who has been a target of a criminal has been strongly impacted. 

It is important, for balance, to know that during the first 9 months and 2 weeks of 2020, the Second Precinct reported only 7.95% of all Minneapolis crime.   Our tally of 333 incidents, while it is up from our 2019 tally for the same period, still proves that the Second Precinct is a very safe place to live. 

Residents can lower the 2020 final tally of reported crime in several ways.  We’ve been told by many officers that it’s important for us to remove valuables from our cars (including the trunk), to lock our cars, to lock up our bikes, to lock garages and porches, and to keep an eye out for unusual activity in your area.   Then, contact your Crime Prevention Specialist and ask to be put on the list for the next Block Club Leader training.
