According to Imperial Beach’s Top Cop, Lt. Dave Brown of the Sheriff’s Department, Imperial Beach had the lowest Crime Rate of any Incorporated City South of the 8 Freeway and is contending for the lowest crime rate in all of San Diego this year, 2015.

This was in a report by Sheriff Lt. Dave Brown presented to the Imperial Beach City Council at their May 20th, 2015 Meeting. He noted that these are on "Part 1 Crimes" where there is a victim involved and does not include crimes were there are no victims. The Figures were obtained from the FBI and SANDAG. Lt. Brown noted that vacation towns tend to have a higher rate. As an example, Lt Brown noted, Imperial Beach had 2.5 million visitors last year. The crimes those people committed are included in IB’s numbers.

As you can see from the slides he provided to Dig Imperial Beach, Imperial Beach’s Crime Rate has been in decline the last 10 years.

Lt. Brown credited it to the changes that started taking places many years ago by alot of hard working people in Imperial Beach!

I want to "Thank" Lt Dave Brown or making the time to get us this information!
