High-crime in Austin has little impact on life in Oak Park

Oak Park, with about 51,900 residents, reported 64 vehicles stolen from within its borders in 2010. Austin’s 15th Police District – with 59,500 residents – reported 532 vehicles stolen during the same year. In fact, Oak Park has far fewer incidents than the Austin district in every prominent category of crime, even though the two communities are fairly similar in size.
