Burglaries in Detroit, Michigan Since 2002

One burglary is one to many if you are the Detroit resident whose home or business was broken into. However, the crime figures for the last few years reveal a welcome reduction in the burglary statistics. This may be due to Detroit’s citizens taking greater care over the security of their properties. Whatever the reason, let us hope that the fall continues into next year and beyond.
