Last month, we reported that crime in Denver was up in seven of nine categories based on Denver Police Department stats, with an increase of 72.4 percent in homicides.

Now, 9News has broken down more DPD numbers and discovered that crime rose in every Denver neighborhood during 2015.

The stats separate offenses into violent crime and property crime. For this post, we're looking at the former — and, specifically, the ten neighborhoods where violent crime increased the most during the past year.

Of course, changes can be dramatic in smaller neighborhoods, where only a few violent crimes can cause enormous data shifts. But the figures are still disturbing. Note that for the number-one neighborhood on this list, violent crime quintupled in 2015.

Count down the photo-illustrated top ten below, featuring Denver Police Department stats.
