"Mid-year crime statistics are very fluid.  Our most recent report (YTD 0731) suggests we have experienced an overall 6% drop in reported crime.  We are encouraged by the fact the largest drop (9%) is in violent crime and a slightly smaller drop (6%) in property crimes.   Cape Coral continues to be a safe city for our residents and we are thankful for our residents’ ongoing support of the efforts of the fine men and women of the Cape Coral Police Department."- B.A. "Jay" Murphy, Chief of Police
