Over 194,000 incidents were reported in 2011, which rounds out to 42.44 index crimes reported per 1,000 residents. Of those, 5.55 were violent, and 36.89 were property-related. Nationally, the median numbers are 3.9 and 29.1, respectively, both far lower than the state medians. The city of Shreveport claims approximately 201,000 of the State’s population, and its crime rates are much higher than the State medians.
