Whether you're moving to a new city or have been in the town area for years, it's important to know what goes on where you live. You want to see the crime rate, if the danger has increased or decreased over the last several years, and any other statistics that will help you determine if you're in a safe place to live. It also greatly helps if where you're moving to is open about their safety. Take San Bernardino County, for example. According to the San Bernardino County website, they are very open with their crime trends, as it's important to be aware of what is going on. Let's break down some more specifics on the county. Here are three things you should know.

Different crimes show different results.

San Bernardino County advises that their property crime rate decreased by 10% but their violent crime rate increased by 15% from 2018 to 2019, and the number of homicide victims also went up. However, since property crimes account for most of the crime in the county, the overall crime rate decreased by 6%.

Juvenile arrests are declining.

Juvenile means crimes committed by those who are under 18 years of age. In 2008, over 9,000 juvenile arrests were made with over 5,000 for felonies and over 3,000 for misdemeanors. Eleven years later, that number has gone down significantly with less than 4,000 total juvenile arrests and less than half of them being from a felony.

The highest crime rate in neighboring counties.

The crime rate in San Bernardino County is one of the highest compared to neighboring counties, including Riverside County, Orange County, and San Diego County. The only one with a higher crime rate is Los Angeles County with around 20 crimes.
