Minneapolis Police To Talk About Low Violent Crime

Police TapeMINNEAPOLIS (AP)  — Police say Minneapolis has the lowest violent crime levels in more than 25 years.

Mayor R.T. Rybak and Police Chief Tim Dolan will hold a news conference Monday to talk about strategies they used to fight crime.

According to a city news release, robbery, aggravated assault, and rape are all down year-to-date between about 3 and 7 percent from 2009.

The number of homicides is up since last year, but 2008, 2009, and 2010 so far have the lowest homicide levels in 25 years or more.
