See the Trulia Crime Heat map here. Trulia Local - Visual analysis of local data They have updated it so you can filter out violent crime from all crime to show where the highest violent crime areas are. This is important for Austin because Austin has high property crime rates, mostly petty crime and theft from automobiles. Those are high anyplace which has large parking lots such as shopping centers and apartment complexes.

This latest mapping update allows you to see where the highest violent crime rates are occuring.

Lots of shoplifting. You can click on the circles to see what the reports are.

Yeah the statistics or classifications must be off, it's showing more violent crimes (almost twice as many) in the Lakeline mall area than in the I35/Rundberg to Lamar/Rundberg area.

Yes there is something wrong with what they are reporting as violent crime in the Lakeline area. When I set the filters to show only violent crime it showed a total of 16 but when you looked at the detail 9 of those were burglary, mostly of vehicles. the other 6 were family violence, assault and hit and run.

Different police dept? Maybe they code crimes differently across different law enforcement agencies? Probably not (seems like it would be important to have a universal standard) but that was my first thought.

I spot checked a few other areas in Austin and it showed the same thing. The filter for violent crime only is apparently not working. I tried to report that on the Trulia website but could not find anyway to do so.
