Martin County crime rate drops more than 14%



The Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s newly released Uniform Crime Report, reflects that the overall crime rate in Martin County is down 14.8%. It is the largest overall drop in Martin County’s crime rate in more than 5-years.


Notably, burglaries are down 17.2%, while Larceny crimes such as shoplifting and theft, dropped 19.2% from last year.


Martin County Sheriff William Snyder credits this drop to the citizen of Martin County, and the agency’s continuous efforts to strengthen relationships with the community by way of community crime watch groups, and community outreach.


In addition, the increased visibility of the Martin County Sheriff’s Office Uniform Road Patrol Units and Community Oriented Policing Unit has made a positive impact, and encouraged citizens to be engaged in activities taking place in their county.


MCSO would like to thank everyone who has set up, or taken part in our community crime watch network, and is hopeful that  citizens will continue to work  to keep the crime rates moving in a downward direction.
