National Crime Prevention Month on October, 2024: Why Have crime ratesreported crimes started to decline in 2010?

October, 2024 is National Crime Prevention Month 2024. Crime Prevention Tech.‎ An Effective resource for Law Enforcement & Security Officers.

Why Have crime rates/reported crimes started to decline in 2010?

Plenty of reasons contribute to this.

A main one is technology especially in the security field.

Unlike in the 80's a security camera can be found almost any store these days.

Secondly, police departments are using many more techniques and spending much more on crime prevention rather than responding to a crime. In other words police are going on the attack now in many more ways than in previous history.

For example, in some cities police will set up a "bait" car wanting someone to steal it so they can catch the would be crook. Also rewards for reporting info of a crime is a very successful method that is basically used nation wide, e.g. Crime Stoppers hot-line.

Probability of getting away with a major crime these days is very low, criminals know this.

Also have you looked at prison populations? Its at record highs these days, that can correlate with with the crime rate decreasing, because more criminals are locked up, so they can't do crimes, right?

But something not mentioned in this study is minor crimes, like property crimes such as vandalism they have went up in the past years, so crime isn't down all around there are still some areas to improve on.
