The Santa Ana City Council is lying about how crime is going down, according to statistics we recently obtained courtesy of the SAPD. Click here to see for yourself. But the biggest problem in our city is the ongoing onslaught of gang-related shootings. Shootings have increased in our city from 9 in 2013 to 42 this year – as of June, 2016, according to the data we received.
Violent crime has skyrocketed in Santa Ana. There were 26 shootings in our city last year. Consider these additional miserable statistics:
- In 2013 there were 631 violent crimes in Santa Ana

- That trend continued in 2015 with 923 crimes
- And here we are in August of 2016 and already we have had 1,014 violent crimes (as of July)
