    2022 UCR Crime Stats – Port Hueneme

    News Release

    In the spirit of transparency and building community trust, the Port Hueneme Police
    Department announces the release of its annual crime statistics.

    The Port Hueneme Police
    Department collects data and crime information as part of the Uniform Crime Reporting
    Program coordinated by the FBI.

    Each year this reliable set of statistics are reported to the
    FBI and subsequently used for evaluating the number of reported Part I crimes in a city.
    The UCR crime categories and the reported crime data for 2022 and the 4 previous years for
    comparison purposes are listed below:

    Grand Total 493 462 459 408 453 11.0% 45

     

    Overall, reported crime is up 11%, which can be attributed to an increase in Property Crimes
    by an additional 50 reported incidents as compared to last year.
    The city saw an 8.1% decrease in Violent Crimes with a decrease in Homicides from 2 in 2021
    to 0 in 2022 and a decrease in Aggravated Assaults from 44 to 38.
    Property Crime in the city increased by 14.5%, with increases of 50% in Motor Vehicle Theft
    and a 12.5% increase in Larceny (theft). The only Property Crime category that saw a
    decrease was Burglary, which had 7.9% decrease.
    Unlocked vehicles and shoplifting were the driving force behind the increase in Property
    Crimes.
    While reported crime in Port Hueneme continues to remain low, quality of life issues once
    again comprised a majority of our calls for service last year. The Port Hueneme Police
    Department is committed to focusing our efforts and resources on not only keeping crime rates
    down, but continuing to seek long-term, sustainable solutions to meet the needs of our
    community.
