Stockton, California, April 30, 2012 - With a median income just two-thirds of 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%; the property crime rate higher than the national average by almost 75%. It 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’s on pace to break that record.
