The San Francisco Police Department released its crime data for 2021, indicating an uptick in crime from 2020, but overall lower crime rates than pre-pandemic levels.

In San Francisco overall, property crimes went up 11% and violent crimes went up by 1% in 2021 compared to 2020, according to San Francisco police’s Compstat data. (Compstat, or computer statistics, is a program used mainly by U.S. police to track and analyze crime statistics.)

But these numbers, as a whole, were lower than crime from 2019 and years past. From 2014 to 2019, between 56,000 and 63,000 total violent and property crimes were recorded. In 2021, there were a total of 49,685 recorded crimes.


A detailed analysis of property crime in Bay Area cities shows that San Jose and Berkeley have seen property crime decrease over the last two years, and while many Bay Area cities saw an increase in 2021, thefts are still down double-digit percentages compared to 2019.
