NE Crime: March 25 – April 1, 2013

What is an acceptable level of crime for the week? Every crime is a failure… of opportunities, or relationships, or communication. Every crime is a failure of society.

Here’s what happened: there were 11 thefts, 4 burglaries, 4 property crimes, 1 assault, and 1 vehicle recovery. For more information, visit, and search Portland, Oregon. Or click on the photograph for a closer look.

The light blue icons are car wrecks, and the red triangles are registered sex offenders.

One good thing about focusing on such a small area is the opportunity to look into the type of crimes so frequent and ordinary that they fly below the radar of most journalism and neighborhood advocacy. We’ll post these maps weekly, and see what trends / information emerges.
