Bolingbrook Crime Rate Drops for Fourth Straight Year

See whether murder, rape, arson, burglary and more increased or decreased in Bolingbrook from 2010 to 2011.

Bolingbrook’s crime rate dropped for the fourth straight year, according to crime statistics recently released by the FBI.

Once riddled with a 25.09 crime rate in 2001, the village has seen its rate decrease to 18.86 in 2011.

The crime rate is the number of violent crimes that occur per 1,000 residents and is calculated by dividing the village’s total population by number of violent crimes (murder, rape, robbery, assault), property crimes (burglary, larceny, car theft) and arson.

Incidents of thefts and arson decreased from 2010 to 2011. Murder stayed constant, and rape, robbery, battery, burglary and vehicle theft increased.

You don't have proof, you have articles about Milwaukee and Dallas. As usual, you just throw crap in the air.
