Just the Facts, Ma’am

Think Spokane’s a perfect, protected place to raise a family, build a business and avoid crime? You might think again.

The Spokane area’s total rate of violent crime is 1.5 times the national average*. Its total rate of property crime is 1.7 times the national average.* That’s not just comparing Spokane to squeaky-clean places like Danbury, CT or Wausau, WI. In some areas Spokane ranks with some of the higher-crime metros in the nation.

Just take a look at the newspaper or watch the local news each night. The Spokane area is faced with more than its fair-share of criminals, vandals, petty thieves, transient muggers, drug-addled burglars and others who think your business, home and property is the next best thing to winning the lottery.

But let's keep things in perspective. Spokane is a great place to live and work. It's a community of wonderful, friendly people. That's why you're here and that's why Joe's here. Don't let a small percentage of misfits ruin what we've got going on. Add GoJoe to your life for some additional security.

Here are a few facts on crime that may surprise you

• Almost 6% of Spokane residents will experience a property crime this year. Take a look at 99 of your closest friends, and include yourself in the picture. Six of that group are likely to get hit in the next year. With over 200,000 people living in Spokane, that totals more than 12,000 property crimes annually.

• To put it in other words, 61 out of 1,000 Spokane area residents will experience crime in the next 12 months. Or to bring it even closer to home, you have a 1 in 149 chance in becoming a crime victim this year**.
