California crime figures expected to improve

The violent crime rate is expected to fall from 2016 to 2017 in three California cities according to projections from the New York University School of Law's Brennan Center for Justice. Researchers from the law and public policy institute analyzed crime trends in the nation's 30 largest cities using police reports and historical data, and they concluded that the overall crime rate in the United States is expected to fall slightly by 1.8 percent and the violent crime rate by 0.6 percent by the end of 2017. The study includes data from Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose. Data from San Francisco was not available when the study was prepared in September.
