Some facts to meditate on:
Over 93% of surveyed Montana's feel always safe or almost always safe in their communities. Less than 1% of respondents said that they feel like they are almost never safe or never safe.
When asked about the crime trend in a general sense over the past three years, interestingly over 40% of respondents felt that crime has somewhat increased or greatly increased.
Respondents were asked a series of five questions related to violent crime and stalking including incidents that had the elements of stalking; simple assault; aggravated assault; sexual assault; and forcible rape. Overall, a little over
of the respondents reported one or more incidents of violent crime.
In 2010 about 7.4% of the respondents reported that they have experienced a stalking incident.
This accounted for over half of the victimizations reported in this section by the respondents.
About 3.2% of the respondents experienced at
least one simple assault. Only a small percentage of respondents reported that they were the victims of aggravated assault (1.0%); sexual assault (1.2%); or forcible rape (0.28%). This finding, in particular the low percentage of sexual
assault and rape victimizations, is not uncommon to a general population survey. However, only about 38% of those were reported to law enforcement. Victims of simple assault and aggravated assault commonly report the incident to law enforcement, but only about half of stalking victims report the
victimization to law enforcement or another authority.
Victims across all crime categories tended to be younger!
In particular, the 20 to 24 age group experienced higher rates than other age groups in three (violent crime, property crime, and stalking) of four crime categories (id theft aside). Persons age 55 and older tended to experience lower
victimization rates compared to other age groups.
According to the sample, females are more fearful of being the victim of a violent crime and feel less safe in their communities than males. Non‐white respondents were less satisfied with law enforcement; were more fearful of being the victim of a violent crime; and felt less safe in their communities. Respondents who were employed full‐time were less satisfied with the job that local law enforcement is doing in their community.
