    Des Moines crime map

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: Des Moines crime map

    ....and your point?

    Where ever there are a lot of people, you increase your opportunity and incident for crime.

    Likewise, there isn't going to be a lot of crime in Cummings, Iowa because: 1) everyone is in bed by 9 2) there are somthing like 500 peeps total.

    What is next? "Downtown has a lot of tall buildings." ?

    Re: Des Moines crime map

    I'd imagine most of the crimes are petty: theft, vandalism, etc... I'm also guessing most of the violent crime involves alcohol in the court ave area on weekend late nights...

    As compared to the rest of the Des moines map, what's the population downtown after 5 during the week or on weekends compared to other areas of Des moines?

    Exactly! The same type of map can be drawn for any city in the world.

    DSM's relatively safe, but any city gets dirty at night.

    This. You want real crime, come visit me and I'll drive you to the border of the bad parts of town at night. Heck, even during the day there are parts of town here where I stay on the main roads.

    I think plenty of people have swatted this back already, but I'll still chime in.

    Come on...you're trying to make something of this, that isn't there.

    When I talk of a concentration of people, I'm talking people out and about for the evening. Where there are a combonation of people out late, bars, drinking, nightlife, etc.etc. etc....you have crime . That is just he way it is.

    Fortunately, in Des Moines, Iowa is still pretty much a non-issue.
