APD Posts Monthly Crime Stats

Crime Stats
September 28, 2023

ALBUQUERQUE – APD posted monthly crime stats comparing 2022 and 2023 on its web site.

Crime stats for APD’s six area commands are also available on the web site.

The crime stats from January through July show continued decreases in some violent crimes such as homicides and robbery, as well as most property crimes, including burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft.

Crimes that have increased between 2022 and 2023 include aggravated offenses, vandalism and stolen property. While aggravated offenses have increased again, a key crime – shootings with injury – are down 10% over this time last year.

Aggravated Offenses




Burglary/Breaking & Entering






Motor Vehicle Theft




Stolen Property




Weapon Violations



Drug and narcotics offenses have increased, reflecting more aggressive enforcement of drug possession crimes. This category of crime stats is more dependent on enforcement because there are fewer victims who report drug possession crimes.

“Overall crime is down this year and we are making progress in key areas where crime remains high,” APD Chief Harold Medina said. “The reduction is due, in part, to our aggressive enforcement of traffic laws, drug possession and our focus on arresting people with warrants. It’s not a coincidence that the crime is going down as the jail population increases.”
