If you live in Austin, chances are you or someone you know has been the victim of a property crime.
That’s because Austin is one of the worst cities nationwide when it comes to property crime.
FBI numbers show Austin’s property crime rates are worse than New York, Chicago or even Los Angeles. Property crimes are so prevalent that a couple of years ago, the Austin Police Department created its very first Burglary Unit.
Every month almost 4,000 property crimes happen in Austin.
