The Ten Denver Neighborhoods With the Biggest Increases in Total Crime

Over the past several days, we've shared posts in which we've listed the ten Denver neighborhoods with the biggest increases in violent crime and property crime in 2015, according to Denver Police Department statistics.

This item combines those two numbers to come up with the neighborhoods with the largest total crime increases.

The largest jump is more than 60 percent.

In some ways, the figures shouldn't be so jarring. In a January piece, we revealed that crime increased in seven of nine categories tracked by the DPD, with homicide climbing by a disturbing 72.4 percent.

And that's not to mention the 9News piece for which the latest data was originally compiled. In it, the station revealed that crime went up in every Denver neighborhood last year.
