The chief will be talking about crimes described in three separate categories: Crimes against persons, crimes against property and crimes against society.
SAN ANTONIO — San Antonio Police Chief William McManus will be briefing City Council on crime data over the last year on Tuesday.
We did some digging and found police data published by the city that covers crime stats from January of last year to October, and we found the rate of murders and violent assaults are down, but the number of stolen vehicles has skyrocketed up 6,000 from the same time last year.
The chief will be talking about crimes described in three separate categories:
- Crimes against persons – murders, assaults, and sex offenses
- Crimes against property – arson, burglary, theft & fraud
- Crimes against society – animal cruelty, gambling, and drug crimes
The chief will be comparing 2023 data to the year before, and discuss what factors have influenced criminal activity.
According to the City Council agenda, the chief will also be talking about the new programs and initiatives that have been added to combat crime.
According to that data online, stolen property offenses have gone down slightly.
But just Monday night, police say a man woke up to find suspects burglaring his car and those suspects started shooting at him.
The man’s sister was hit multiple times.
We’ll have to wait to see what the chief says on Tuesday about crimes like theft and if there’s an uptick of violence associated with those crimes.
