Data for calendar year 2021 reveals that crime is down in Seal Beach.
The City of Seal Beach has released their annual crime statistics for the year 2021. Based on the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report standards, overall Part I (serious) Crime is down by 11% in the City of Seal Beach. Notably, robberies are down 25% and larceny is down 12%.
“The safety of the community is of the highest concern for the City Council and all City staff,” said Seal Beach City Manager Jill Ingram. “I am proud of this drop in crime and the hard work of Chief Gonshak and the men and women of the Seal Beach Police Department.”
“The mission of the Police Department is to drive down crime and improve the quality of life in Seal Beach,” said Chief of Police Philip Gonshak. “Our goal is for residents, visitors, and businesses to feel safe and secure in this community. Although there are several factors that influence crime rates, we know that this reduction of crime is likely related to having more officers on the street, the enhancement of our crime fighting technology, and the efficiencies created as a result of the recent Police Department Reorganization plan. None of this could have been possible without the support of the City Manager, City Council, and City staff.
