Back in May, we posted about the ten Denver neighborhoods with the highest crime to that point in 2015, as measured by crime density statistics complied by the Denver Police Department.

This post is both an update and a much broader look at the topic.

As before, we've drawn upon DPD stats — but this time, they cover the dates from January 1, 2015 until this week.

Moreover, all 78 Denver neighborhoods are represented and ranked from least to most crimes of every kind — minor and major alike — per square mile.

Where did your neighborhood place? Find out in our photo-illustrated list below.
