How Does Crime in FL-SB Compare to Neighboring Towns?

NJ Spotlight has created an interactive map of 2011 crime rates in New Jersey.

NJ Spotlight has created an interactive map using the recently released 2011 Uniform Crime Report that plots the total crime rate per 1,000 people for seven index crimes (four violent -- murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault -- and three non-violent -- burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft).

Fair Lawn

Fair Lawn's total index crimes reached a four-year high in 2011, largely on account of the rapidly growing number of burglaries in the borough since 2008. For a full breakdown of Fair Lawn's 2011 Uniform Crime Report, click here.

Saddle Brook

Saddle Brook's rates of violent and non-violent crime both fell last year for the first time since 2006. For a full breakdown of Saddle Brook's 2011 Uniform Crime Report, click here.

New Jersey

Crime in New Jersey rose by 3 percent in 2011, with the increase attributed to a jump in non-violent crimes. Violent crimes decreased slightly. The number of burglaries across the state reached a high not seen since 2003. For more on the state Uniform Crime Report, click here.
