ComPol Shares Stats for Other Crimes Committed in 2019

Chester Williams

And other crimes, such as unlawful sexual intercourse were up while robberies, burglaries and theft decreased in 2019 when compared to 2018. Commissioner Chester Williams told the press today that crimes against women and children were also low for last year.


Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“Sex crime is up, particularly unlawful sexual intercourse. I think those are up by sixty-six percent but again you will know that those are things that occur within a home and those are not things that the police can really and truly police. Rape is also up slightly. Burglary, robberies and theft are down.”


Andrea Polanco

“What would you say the numbers look like for the numbers committed against women and/or children?”


Chester Williams

“It is not as bad. It is extremely low. A very low percentage was against women and children. And, for the most part, when we do have against women it is within a domestic setting – under the domestic category. So, it is not as much as it was up – it is down significantly.”
