Numbers

Each month the High Point Police Department shares the most recent data related to violent crimes, gang activity, gun seizures and other interactions with our community at the HPCAV monthly meeting. The information below is from the May 10, 2022 meeting.

Impact (Violent) Crimes

Impact or Violent crimes include crimes against persons (homicide, manslaughter, rape, robbery, aggravated assault) and crimes against property (burglary, auto theft, all larceny).

We have had seven homicides year to date (as of May 18). In spite of this, we cannot give up. We continue to have decreased crime in other areas. The officers of our police department work hard to make this happen. They do a lot of preventive work, which most of us never see. Thank you, HPPD.

Crime Trends

Guns Seized

Seizing illegal guns continues to be a focus. Notice how many guns are being carried in vehicles.
The dark orange line represents the number of gun casings found at the scene of a shooting. These are entered into NIBIN, which helps law enforcement track the weapon and any involvement in other crimes.

Monthly Infographic

The infographic is another way to depict the statistics each month. It includes the very important statistic of crime clearance rate. HPPD does an excellent job of clearing cases.
