Crime in Rockridge

A member of Rockridge Residents, the somewhat more affluent neighborhood to the northeast, did an analysis on crime in their hood. Here is the report: "Oh. My. God. Rockridge OPD crime reports are at a 2.5 year high, and that’s only because I only went as far back as 10/31/05. 2008 Crime reports are running over double the '06 & '07 average."

In HarriOak the numbers are not so bad as community organizing efforts by the Darries Project, Harpo and others are paying off, after a scary few months at the beginning of 2007. Please consider helping out these organizations as the situation throughout Oakland remains pretty tenuous, thanks to lack of action by the mayor and city council.
