Pensacola Police release crime statistics for 2013
Published: Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 03:45 PM.
The Pensacola Police Department’s annual crime report has been submitted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and it shows an overall 14 percent reduction of the city’s crime rate compared with 2012.
This represents the department’s largest annual crime reduction in over 14 years, said Chief Chip W. Simmons.
“Not only does this show a decrease in violent and non-violent crimes within city limits, but also it reflects the outstanding work done on a daily basis by our officers,” Simmons said.
FDLE will review, record and release the department’s report with those from other law enforcement agencies statewide within the next few months.
