So East Palo Alto burglaries are down - and reportedly Palo Alto's are up. Go figure.

Are these figures comparing 6-month totals of this year 1st half to last year 2nd half? Or to last year 1st half? Are there seasonal variations in types of crimes here?
The burglary/larceny numbers do show a welcome decrease. Have there been changes in definition or reporting patterns?
Just trying to understand the significance of the statistics.

Yay for EPA... NOT!
The crimes need to be separated into physically harmful and non physically harmful categories. Nice to know Burglaries, Larcenies and Vehicle thefts are down, but more importantly Homicides, Sexual Assaults and Assaults are all UP!! EPA Police need to step their game up and stop the crimes that matter the MOST!
