Personal Protection Tips: Be Aware of Seasonal Effects on Violent Crime Rates in Your Community

Personal Protection Tips: Be Aware of Seasonal Effects on Violent Crime Rates in Your Community - Although violent crime can happen in any location at any hour, it is wise to be aware of the fact that incidence rates of violent crime is higher at certain times of the year.

To start, in the city of Detroit, violent crime spikes during the first extended warm weekend of the year in late spring/early summer. In addition, violent crime also spikes during the time period between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. Some crime researchers snidely refer to it as the "Holiday Robbing Season." It is during this time when a lot of people are carrying large amounts of cash.

Furthermore, citizens should also be aware of the fact that violent crime rates also increase, in general, after daylight savings time kicks in - it gets dark in Detroit around 4:45PM EST.

Thusly, paying attention to the season effects on violent crime rates can signal to citizens that their communities are especially unsafe during these periods and additional precautions should be taken.
