Phoenix Crime & Safety Tips

Phoenix, AZ is a large metro that offers a lot to its residents, but has never been one to deny it’s struggle with increasing crime throughout its communities. The West Valley, specifically, holds some of the highest crime rates for the Phoenix metro, and some even higher than that of the city itself. Overall, Phoenix is above the nation’s average crime rate statistics. Phoenix has also ranked both in the “Top Ten Most Dangerous Cities in the US,” and “Top 25 Most Dangerous US Metros.” Though it doesn’t hold the number one spot on either list, it is still ranked high for it’s crime. The most recent target has been the community of Aracadia—located in the heart of Phoenix—where local restaurants have been victims of burglary, and one attempted robbery.

RAIDS Connects Phoenix Police & Communities To Reduce Crime

The Phoenix Police Department recently partnered with Regional Analysis Information Sharing (RAIDS), which created a program to build a connection between community and police, as well as a hope for reducing crime in the area. RAIDS is an outlet that provides crime information to the public communities in Phoenix where residents are able to search crime statistics and locations for a specific time range. It also allows them to “search around areas of a home they are considering buying or around a school their children might attend.” RAIDS also helps the public connect with the police by permitting anonymous tip submissions through the system. It might have taken the Police Department two years to build and perfect, but with hard work and dedication to providing a reliable network for the Phoenix communities, RAIDS offers a “simple crime-mapping and research experience.” More information can be found on the RAIDS or City of Phoenix websites.
