[ARCHIVED] Crime in Durango fell during December

Crime Stats

Durango, CO:  December’s crime statistics for 2022 in the city show a consistent decrease compared to a year ago, with 61 total offenses committed compared to 86 in December 2021, and decreases in nearly every category.

“We are still struggling with retail theft but our partnerships over the holiday shopping season did have a measurable impact and our strategies continue to evolve,” said Police Chief Bob Brammer. For December 2022 there were 46 larceny or theft offenses committed, versus 63 for December 2021.

Auto theft remains a high priority for the Durango Police Department, said Brammer. “Colorado is the No. 1 state in the nation for auto theft. The great news is we had a 15% reduction in 2022 overall.” 

For the entire year, the department has been doing more proactive work regarding enforcement, said Tessa Reinhart, Durango Police Department’s crime analyst. "Our citations increased quite a bit," she said. "About 40 percent from 2021 to 2022." Traffic stops, including those for DUIs, increased 107 percent for the year. The final report for 2022 is expected to be available in March.

For more information on the city’s law-enforcement efforts, go to the city website.”
