Crime Statistics

Data includes all years for which reliable, standardized statistics are available.

The “All” category represents incidents reported. The “Cleared” category is a subset of “All”, showing arrests made for those incidents. The “Juv” category is a subset of “Cleared”, showing the number of arrests of juveniles for the incidents.

Many of the crime statistics in Jenkintown involve small numbers, and variations over time in small numbers are not necessarily significant. Motor vehicle thefts increasing from 500 to 1,000 in a large municipality would be alarming; a similar 100% increase in Jenkintown, from one to two, would be a normal variation.
