Sex Crime down in Cape Coral while violent crime up in Fort Myers

Sex crime down 75% Cape Coral while violent crime up in Lee County

Cape Coral Police Department says that violent crimes are down.  Sex crime is down 75% compared to this time last year eight incidents were reported last year while only two have been reported so far this year.  While robberies are on the rise up 12% homicides are down 33% and aggravated assaults are down 9%.  Sex crime having the biggest decrease may have to do with the lack of victims reporting sexual offenses incidents.  News-Press

According to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, overall crime is down in Lee County (unincorporated Lee as well as Bonita Springs and Fort Myers Beach) although there is a 5% increase in violent crimes.  LCSO did not specifically mention sex , but may have included sex crime offenses with violent crimes.  According to LCSO website the total number of crimes dropped from 4968 to 4804.  Sheriff Scott says, "While the total number of crimes is down, the number of arrests is actually up by more than 200. This shows that the fine deputies with the Sheriff's Office continue to work to make Lee County a safer place for you and me." He also stated "Of course the year is only half over, so our goal is to keep up the good work for the next six months.  I have no doubt the men and women of the Lee County Sheriff's Office will be up to the challenge."
