Record Homicides

With a median income two-thirds that of the California average, Stockton has struggled for years with some of the state's highest crime rates. The city's violent crime rate in 2009 was higher than the national average by almost 200 percent; the property crime rate was higher than the national average by almost 75 percent. Stockton also has the second-highest murder rate in California, and last year the city's 58 homicides were an all-time record. This year it is on pace to break that record.
