There’s good news from the Lansing Police Department as the city reviews its biannual FBI Uniform Crime Report.

Violent crime is down 16 percent and overall, 549 fewer crimes were committed in the first six months of 2004 compared to the first six months of 2003.

Even though crime is down, Lansing Police Chief Mark Alley says the department will continue to focus on its two main areas of concern, homicide and domestic violence.
