Americans Say Crime Up; Pueblo Sees Crime Wave

Gallup reported in October 2015 that 70 percent of Americans believe crime is up from 2014, a seven-point increase in one year. Half of Denver residents believe crime has increased in the last year, but 73 percent of Pueblo residents see crime wave in the last year.

In an open-ended question on the county’s main problem, 61 percent of Pueblo residents said crime, gangs and drug abuse was the most serious problem. In Denver, affordable housing, growth and congestion was the top problems (55%), crime came in second (31%).
