Great work RPD.

Violence in Rochester needs to be addressed by more than just the RPD.
Only 4% US communities have a higher violence rate than Rochester.
Rochester has a higher violence rate, more than New York City or Brooklyn NY.

I wonder how the RPD murder arrest rate stacks up against Buffalo and Saracuse? Must be fun to be a homicide detective always on the hunt.
