Crime decreases 38 percent

Avalon Sheriff’s Station has successfully partnered with the community to significantly lower the crime rate on Santa Catalina Island.  Preliminary reports show Avalon Station, which provides law enforcement services for the entire Island, had a 38 percent decrease in Part 1 crimes from 2014 to 2015. Part 1 crimes include serious crimes committed against persons and property.  A total of 71 Part 1 crimes were reported last year on Catalina Island, which equates to one Part 1 crime every five days.  Almost 90 percent of the Part 1 crimes reported on the Island involved thefts of property.   Every law enforcement agency in the country reports their Part 1 crimes to the FBI, which is responsible for collecting and maintaining the data known as the Uniformed Crime Reports.

The amount of Part 1 crimes that occur in Avalon each year are very few in comparison to most other cities in Los Angeles County.  A 38 percent reduction in Part 1 crimes, throughout the entire Island, is a real tribute to the community and the deputies who serve the community.  Our goal for 2016, is to keep Catalina Island as one of the most beautiful, fun and safest places to visit or live in Los Angeles County.
