Mayor Dannel P. Malloy announced today the release of the Police Department’s crime statistics for the first half of 2009. Overall, crime for the first six months of 2009 is slighter lower (.7%) than the same time last year. More specifically, serious crime, which includes homicides, assaults and robberies, is down 17.7%. Included in that statistic are decreases in robberies by 25.8% and aggravated assaults by 17%.

Stamford is currently ranked as the 9th safest city in the United States and 3rd safest in the Northeast region. This ranking is based upon preliminary FBI crime statistics for calendar year 2008 released on June 1, 2009. The FBI defines cities as those municipalities with populations of 100,000 or more. There are 268 communities across the country that reported data to the FBI from which these statistics were compiled. Stamford’s designation as one of the top eleven safest cities in the nation has been consistent for 8 consecutive years.

“This is an extraordinary achievement by the men and women of the Stamford Police Department,” said Mayor Malloy. “I am very proud of our police department personnel and I commend everyone in Stamford who works so hard to maintain and enhance our public safety. Especially during an economic downtown, when crime tends to increase, Stamford remains a safe and vibrant community to live, work and raise a family.”
