Violent crime stayed level in Sioux Falls last year

by

Sioux Falls, SD (KELO-AM) The amount of violent crime in Sioux Falls last year stayed about the same as in 2012, despite the city's growth.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says that burglaries and aggravated assaults were up somewhat, but other than that, overall violent crime statistics were either down a little or stayed level in 2013. 

Clemens says the police took more calls from more people last year, but as far as violent crime, the numbers were comparable to the year before.

For example, the annual crime report will show that robberies went down from 83 to 80, vandalism incidents from 1,979 to 1,837, and rapes went down from 153 in 2012 to 142 last year.
