FBI Releases 2010 Crime Stats for South Suburbs

Curious about the number of crimes reported in your Patch town in 2010? We've got the FBI tally.

The FBI released its 2010 Uniform Crime Report Monday. South and southwest suburbs served by the Patch network in Cook and Will counties are listed below in charts for violent crimes and property crimes.

The data reflect communities that reported crime statistics for all 12 months of 2010. Chicago Heights and Orland Hills were not included in the FBI's release of data.

Due to a change in state reporting methods, Illinois statistics from 2010 cannot be compared to 2009 statistics, according to the FBI.

The FBI cautions against using this data to rank police departments and community crime rates. When the FBI determines an agency’s data collection methodology does not comply with national UCR guidelines, that agency’s information will not be included in the Uniform Crime Report.

Look to your local Patch site for future reports that put these statistics into perspective.
