The Arlington crime rate is at the lowest level since 1961, according to the Arlington County (Virginia) Police Department. Considering how much the County has urbanized since that time, dramatically increasing in population, that result is extraordinary.
There was only one homicide in Arlington in 2014 — the result of a domestic-related incident.
The only criminal category that increased was Rape. The number rose from 26 to 27.
Our lawyers hope that our firm’s efforts to defend those who are not guilty played a part in the statistical reduction.
One might think that, for us Arlington criminal attorneys, an overall crime reduction would be unwelcome news. Nonsense! We live and work in this community, too. In addition to criminal law, we practice employment law, business and civil litigation, and government contracts. Don’t worry about us! We’ll be fine.
