Let's Break It Down
Property crime is down in all three counties.
Property crime includes burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson-related offenses. Theft or burglary is only included in this category if it did not include force or threat of force against a person. Property crime rates in all three counties – Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie – have consistently trended downward since 2000. In 2014, Douglas County reported 3,756 property crimes per 100,000 people; Pottawattamie County reported 5,060 property crimes per 100,000 people; and data was not available for Sarpy County.
