Over the past 10 years, crime in the state of Arizona has shown a general downward trend, and that trend is expected to continue. However, in 2009, the violent crime rate in Arizona was 23.8% higher than the national violent crime rate, and Arizona's property crime rate was higher than the national average by nearly 75%, according to CityRating.com and a press release on Arizona crime statistics.*
In 2010, there were 50,771 burglaries reported in Arizona. That number was less than the 54,308 burglaries reported in 2009. However, it still averages out to around 139 burglaries per day across the state. When all property crimes are considered, one property crime occurs every two minutes, 19 seconds in Arizona on average.
