LUBBOCK, Texas -

Violent crime in Lubbock went up 1% from 2018 to 2019, according to FBI data. 

Police investigated 16 murders, 269 rape reports, 468 robberies and nearly 1,900 aggravated assaults. There were about 12,000 property crimes reported last year. Police investigated more burglaries and car thefts, but fewer car break-ins. 

City Manager Jarrett Atkinson notes these are raw numbers and the city's growth outpaces the growth of its crime. 

Also included, Chief Mitchell reports 51 people died in traffic crashes last year. That's one and a half times as many in 2018.
