According to a report  by Kyle FeldscherKyle Feldscher |

in 2014 Lansing crime rate increased in 2013 but police chief says incidents are down this year.  He said the 2013 crime rate for both violent crime and property crime were far above the Michigan averages and increased from 2012. Violent crimes per 100,000 people, more than double Michigan’s violent crime rate of 449.9 violent crimes per 100,000 people.  He said the Violent Crime Initiative — a collaboration between federal, state, county and local law enforcement — has helped stem that tide. In 2014, it appeared that crime was trending down.

Yankowski also said the city has seen decreases in violent and property crime, due to the police department’s work with business watches, neighborhood watches and school watches. He added that the department’s outreach into schools — especially the Gang Resistant Education And Training (GREAT) program — would mean less crime in the future.

“We trained eight police officers to go into middle schools and teach curriculum to kids about making good choices, about not joining gangs and not resorting to violence,” Yankowski said. “It’s the second school year teaching that program. We expect that extension, reaching out to our youth, to pay dividends.”


Since that report, it appears that crime has decreased some 6%. Perhaps due to prayers too? See article below….
