The number of murders declined last year, with six reported in 2018 and 12 murders investigated the year before.

Robberies were also down from 125 to 78 over the two year span. Motor vehicle theft also dropped from 122 in 2017 to 83 in 2018.

The report states there were 109 violent crimes, 73 sex crimes, and 129 reports involving property crimes last year.
