Elk Grove Police Department releases 2023 annual report

In March the Elk Grove Police Department released its annual report for 2023. The full report can be viewed here.

The report covers every aspect of the Elk Grove Police Department, including patrol, investigations, media relations, real-time traffic, and animal control.

From the report:

In 2023, the Elk Grove Police Department reported crime statistics to the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) for the second consecutive year. NIBRS is the FBI’s crime reporting system that collects and reports crime data, and it is designed to provide a common language of crime classifications across the nation. NIBRS compiles a variety of crime classifications along with the different elements associated with the crime such as victimology, relationships, arrestee data and property involved.  NIBRS has three categories for crime reporting which are Crimes Against Person, Crimes Against Property and Crimes Against Society. 

Elk Grove saw an increase in Crimes Against Society which includes offenses such as drug violations, weapons law violations, and disorderly conduct.  Further, certain criminal offenses such as trespassing or driving under the influence are only reported under the Crimes Against Society category when there is an arrest.  The expansion of officers on patrol, in addition to the increase of proactive enforcement efforts such as vehicle stops, are contributing factors that correspond to the increase in the Crimes Against Society category in 2023.

Here are some comparisons between 2022 and 2023.

  • Violent crime was down 2% (homicide, rape robbery, assault)
  • Property crime was down 10% (arson, burglary, motor vehicle theft, larceny-theft)
  • Crime against society was up 68% (drug violations, weapons law violations, disorderly conduct)
  • Vehicle stops were up 83%
  • DUI arrests were up 23%
  • Distracted driving up 46%
