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 November 9, 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 13 homicides year to date, all with a firearm. We continue to have decreased crime in other areas thanks to the effective work of our police department. They do a lot of preventive work, which most of us never see. When the community joins in, solving crimes and preventing crimes is even more successful.
