FBI Releases 2010 Crime Stats for North 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.

The north and northwest suburbs served by the Patch sites in Cook and Lake 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. Due to a change in state reporting methods, Illinois statistics from 2010 cannot be compared to 2009 statistics, according to the FBI.

Glenview, Niles, Wilmette and Glencoe were not included in the FBI's release of data.

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 Uniform Crime Report guidelines, that agency’s information is not included.

I NEVER SEE ANYTHING ON MUNDELEIN

@pondel Thanks for your comment. We did not include Mundelein in this list because we don't have a Patch site there, unfortunately. Mundelein was included in the FBI's data, however. According to the FBI, there were 12 instances of violent crime reported in Mundelein (population 33,921) in 2010: 0 murder/nonnegligent manslaughter, 3 forcible rapes, 3 robberies and 6 aggravated assaults. There were 421 instances of property crime: 57 burglaries, 358 larceny-thefts, 6 motor vehicle thefts and 2 arsons. Anyone who is interested can check out the full list of 2010 Illinois data at http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.-2010/tables/table-8/10tbl08il.xls

That is pretty sad to see such a large number of violent and property crimes is Skokie.

Nobody cares about Mundelein. It's not even apart of the North Shore!
