That is because many of the criminals left Arizona because of the new laws there. The criminals are also finding it less easy to get caught in cities further North, and they are also expanding their operations and manpower further North. For example Denver has a huge population of illegal Mexicans. Much easier to conduct crime and mix in there and other big cities as their are no customs checks, and people are more aware of things that are happening in the border cities.

In the big cities their is much crime and less man power to police power to handle and investigate it all.

No border patrol further North! They are more on high alert on the border cities.
