Several thousand reports of auto thefts, robberies, batteries and burglaries have been added to the ArkansasOnline interactive Little Rock crime map since it debuted a year ago this week.

A look back at those reports — which are preliminary and may differ somewhat from finalized reports — shows the following totals from April 3, 2013, through Wednesday:

  • 1,295 auto thefts
  • 146 first-degree batteries
  • 2,637 residential burglaries
  • 377 commercial burglaries
  • 948 robberies

Not all of the burglaries included information about the amount of property and cash stolen and some listed the values at $1, indicating an exact amount wasn't known. But those reports that included any sort of estimate in the last year totaled the following:

  • $4,678,087.67 in stolen property
  • $173,412.84 in stolen cash
  • $4,851,500.51 in stolen property and cash

Most of the burglary reports, though not all, included a zip code. Of those, the zip codes with the most burglaries in the span were:

  • 72209 with 742 burglary reports
  • 72204 with 615
  • 72205 with 353
  • 72211 with 250
  • 72202 with 200
  • 72206 with 189
  • 72227 with 187
  • 72207 with 108
  • 72210 with 87
  • 72103 with 76

Zip codes with the most robbery reports, meanwhile, were:

  • 72209 with 231 robbery reports
  • 72204 with 208
  • 72205 with 110
  • 72211 with 85
  • 72202 with 73
  • 72206 with 45
  • 72227 with 42
  • 72210 with 36
  • 72201 with 35
  • 72212 with 22

The map and accompanying searchable database feature preliminary reports for certain crimes as they are made available by the Little Rock Police Department. It started with crime reports from April 3, 2013, and includes the vast majority of days since, though a handful of days are missing because of server problems within the police department's system.

    So much for the Mayor's promise of reduced crime if voters passed the sales tax increase.

    The levels of crime in Little Rock are truly frightening -- much worse than a lot of cities much larger. It's certainly not going to do much for the economy of the region if people are getting afraid to live and shop there. And what do we see being done to improve the situation????

    I am not sure it is that bad, I wonder if other cities honestly report their crimes, and if their is a true way to make comparisons?

    Not much. Most crimes in Little Rock are committed by young black men who have a history of attending bad schools and have neglectful or abusive parents. If people are serious about crime, they should support summer youth and education programs for those kids who are most at risk. People who have a future don't commit these kinds of crimes. If one could have programs for those who are 10 to 15 and job/study programs for those who are 16 to 18, this would not be happening. Also, the police need to arrest the parents of truants. Kids who are bad influences at school need to be expelled and sent to juvenile detention centers.

    And Eric Holder wants every one of them to vote as soon as they receive their felony convictions.
    @Populist - You harping about youth sports and education opportunity is a joke. The problem is unwed mothers. The solution is to vote for conservative candidates that will support public policies that disincentivize the baby momma culture. You voted for Obama, Pop, you helped create the very problem you whine about. You and the libs own crime in the US.
    @nwr - I ain't skeert. CCHL. Two to the chest, one to the head. Do not allow yourself to be a victim.
