Plainfield Crime Stats: 2011


2011 Plainfield crime stats, as tracked by NJ Spotlight.
 
Plainfield readers can check out a visual presentation of the FBI's most recent crime data on New Jersey -- the 2011 Uniform Crime Report -- in a visual format courtesy of the good folks at NJ Spotlight (see here).

You will notice that there is a two-year comparison, 2011 and the previous year.

What you will not notice is a separate entry for homicides, which are grouped under 'violent' crimes along with rape and aggravated assault.

Why can't we have more current crime data, mapped to the community, as reported today by Maria Pellum (see here)?

The answer is that we can, if the Robinson-Briggs administration wants to provide it.
 
Next question?
