Violent Crimes

Violent crime negatively affects those immediately impacted by it and the communities where it occurs, but also makes the broader population feel less safe.

The violent crime rate in Minnesota—as measured by the number of violent crimes per 100,000 people—has generally been in decline since 2006. For this measure, violent crime includes homicide, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. Aggravated assaults make up the majority of violent crime. The relative proportion of each of the four violent crime types has remained steady.
