Have the high temperatures been keeping violent criminals at home? Was it too hot last week to grab a hipster’s cell phone out of his hands?

Seems it’s possible. The Washington Examiner had this Tuesday: “”People say,’it’s too hot to kill, or I don’t have the energy to kill,” said Ellen G. Cohn, a professor at Florida International University who has examined connections between weather and crime for nearly 30 years.” (Hat tip to TBD.com for the story link.)

MPD Crime Statistics, PSA 307, Logan Circle, Borderstan

Thefts from autos are the most common type of crime. There were 159 in the Logan Circle area in the first six months of 2011. (MPD Crime Database)

From Matty Rhoades

For the first six months of 2011, the number of crimes in the Logan Circle area was steady in most categories compared to the same period of 2010 — with the exception of thefts from autos (“smash and grabs”).

The huge rise in this single category drove up the crime rate in the Logan Circle area. Smash and grabs are the most common type of crime in the Borderstan area, so a large rise in this category can easily drive up the overall rate.

Police Service Area (PSA) 307 covers the Logan Circle neighborhood. All numbers are from the MPD Crime Database.

Detailed crime numbers for Logan Circle are below the fold. The Dupont Circle numbers were reported last week and the citywide numbers were detailed earlier this month.

Six-Month Numbers for Logan Circle

For the January through June period, there were 62 violent crimes in PSA 307, the same as in the first six months of 2010. Robberies decreased from 45 to 40 for the comparable six-month period. However, the number of assaults rose from 11 to 18. Gun crimes rose slightly from 10 in the January to June period of 2010 to 12 this year. Gun crimes are all crimes (usually robberies and assaults) committed with guns.

There were 308 property crimes in the first six months of 2011 in PSA 307, up from 222 in the same period of 2010. This was due to the huge rise in the number of smash and grabs. There were declines in the number of burglaries and stolen autos while thefts were up slightly.

Three-Year Trend: 2008 to 2011

What does the three-year trend for the January through June period in PSA 307 show?
