The Polk/PCSO crime rate is 45.1% less than the Florida state crime rate. The crime rate, which is the number of crimes per 100 residents, is down 6.4% from 2020 (1.26) to 2021 (1.18). This is the lowest crime rate ever measured in PCSO's jurisdiction! Since 1997, the year we launched our proactive crime fighting model (PROCAP), the crime rate in Polk County has fallen 82%.

The response appears to be several image files named “image” followed by three digit numbers and one image named “~WRD000”. These images appear to be social media website icons, a logo for the Polk County Sheriff’s office, a green bar, and several blank or transparent icons. These records are not responsive to the request.
