Topeka Crime Statistics

The slides you see break down property and violent crime statistics for the entire city, and then specifically the west side of Topeka and  the East side of Topeka. The 2 sides of town are separated to correspond to the way patrol operations and radio frequencies are separated.

These statistics are valid up through November 21st 2017. The numbers you see compare week 2016 to week 2017; month 2016 to month 2017 and year to date 2016 to year to date 2017.

For example, on the first slide for Citywide statistics on violent crime-

Week to week comparisons show the city is up by 7 crimes-noted with the “+” in Homicide,Rape,Robbery to Business and Aggravated Assault/Battery.

Month to month comparisons show the City has seen a decline of 13 crimes- noted by the “-” in homicide,rape,robbery to individual and Aggravated Assault/Battery.

Year to year comparison illustrates the City has seen an increase of 46 crimes- noted by the “+” in the homicides,robbery to individual,robbery to business and Aggravated Assault/Battery.

This is how you would also interpret the other slides provided.
