And for those of you concerned: How does this year’s homicide rate in PBC compare to 2017?

Last year was a terrible year. As reported in The Palm Beach Post, “As 2017 becomes history in a few hours, the year is guaranteed to rank among the deadliest in Palm Beach County in nearly a decade.” In 2018 three municipalities account for nearly half of all homicides in PBC: West Palm Beach (23), Riviera Beach (10) and Delray Beach (7).

Late last month as noted on this blog there were eighty-five homicides in the County. That number now stands at eighty-eight. It’s hard to imagine 2018 could be worse than last year.
