Housing, Unemployment, Foreclosures – Elk Grove Has Been Hit Harder…

Elk Grove is one of the only Sacramento area communities struggling with rising crime lately, according to a new statistical report.

According to a SacBee article this morning, By Phillip Reese;

FBI statistics released today show that violent crime dropped significantly in Sacramento and Roseville last year, remained steady in unincorporated Sacramento County, crime dropped significantly in Sacramento and Roseville last year and jumped in Elk Grove.

Elk Grove was the outlier last year. While most types of crime in the suburb dropped slightly, the number of aggravated assaults rose 50 percent.

The city’s aggravated assault rate remains below Sacramento‘s but it is high for a suburb – the rate is roughly the same as Fresno’s, FBI statistics show.

“Housing, unemployment, foreclosures – Elk Grove has been hit harder than a lot of the other cities,” Elk Grove Police spokesman Christopher Trim said.

Elk Grove’s property crime rate declined last year, but not as quickly as Sacramento‘s.
