Sonoma County Sees 22% Drop In Crime Rate

Reported crime has gone down in Sonoma County during the past decade. A new report from the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice shows that on a year by year basis, reported crimes in the county went down 22% between 2010 and 2019. In fact, California as a whole has seen reported crimes drop 12% during that same time frame. It is noted that the drop does come in the midst of several reforms passed in the past decade, including Prop 47 in 2014 which reclassified several drug and property offenses from potential felonies to misdemeanors.
