Local News

BROWNSVILLE, Texas – The annual crime report is now public in the city of Brownsville.

Each year law enforcement agencies submit statistics to determine an index of crime for the FBI. For the city of Brownsville that means a lower overall index with a decrease of all major crime categories except for Aggravated Assault.

The 29-page report outlines that 2018 was one of Brownsville’s best years with the least overall crimes in almost 10 years.

Chief Felix Sauceda, “We’re very proud of our crime stats. We’re very proud of living in the community and affording the community the level of safety that they deserve, that they’ve come to expect from us.

2018 was also the year when the local police department adopted and converted to a new reporting method. See the full report here:
