Real City of Lake Worth Crime Statistics

Did you know that crime dropped in the little City of Lake Worth—nearly 5% last year compared to 2013? It did.

It's already been demonstrated how The Other Blogger (TOB) and Margaret Menge with her new "newspaper" are manipulating the citizenry in our City, vis-à-vis actual crime rates and the perception of crime rates. You can read about that here and here.

Recently, I discovered updated crime statistics for the City of Lake Worth from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) from January to December of 2014.

If you read The Lake Worth Trib, or visit the TOB's blog, you would conclude, through no fault of your own, that crime is going up and is "out of control". Well, that is actually NOT the case.
FDLE, for their purposes, refers to PBSO District 14, as the "Lake Worth Police Department" to not confuse with unincorporated Palm Beach County.
Crime has dropped in nearly every category.
Note that nearly 30% of stolen property was recovered.
The ugly truth is this: There are citizens in our community who have an agenda and are willing to go to any lengths to confuse and manipulate you, your family, and neighbors by distorting the facts. The agenda, in part, is to discredit our PBSO District 14, Captain Silva, and the fine deputies who work in our City.
