Robbery also saw a significant decrease last year, declining 17% in 2012. Robberies decreased from 77 in 2011 to 64 last year. Motor vehicle thefts dropped from 150 in 2011 to 145 in 2012, while burglaries showed a significant decrease from 600 to 549.

One murder was reported in both 2011 and 2012.

On the other side of the ledger, three more rapes were reported in 2012 than the year before, when 39 were logged. Theft also increased in 2012, going up 7% to 2,583 reported crimes.  Some 2,413 were reported in 2011.

“Going after career criminals who are victimizing Greeley’s citizens remains the number one priority of the Police Department,” said Jerry Garner, Greeley’s police chief.

“We’ve made a good start, but there’s more to do.”
