The FBI issued their latest violent crime report – and the findings were a bit of a mixed bag for Santa Ana, which is the County Seat here in Orange County.

On the plus side, “Anaheim, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Orange and Santa Ana all reported a decrease in violent crime during the first six months of the year,” according to the O.C. Register.

After a year of turmoil in Irvine, between the City Council and their police union, they held on to the lowest violent crime figure in the County, but violent crime went up in Irvine by 42%.  No other city had such a vast increase in violent crime.

Violent crime went up in Costa Mesa and Fullerton too.  In fact it went up by 40% in Fullerton.
