    Total crime increased 21% percent during the month of April compared to the previous month, according to the Cambridge Police Department’s monthly crime report. Property crime increased by 22 percent and violent crime increased by 13 percent, including the city’s first murder in over 15 months.

    The numbers come during the continued spread of the New Coronavirus, which has prompted Governor Charlie D. Baker ’79 to extend a statewide stay-at-home advisory from May 4 to May 18.

    In Cambridge alone, there have been 840 positive cases and 69 COVID-19 deaths as of May 10.

    Property Crime Surged by 22%

    Property Crime Surged by 22 percent as Thieves Targeted Bike Racks, Vehicles, and Residential door steps. Last month, break-ins of motor Vehicles Skyrocketed from 10 incidents in March to 34 incidents and bike thefts rose from 22 incidents to 34 incidents.

    CPD spokesperson Jeremy Warnick said the department published a notice on its website in mid-April warning the public of an increase in package thefts and car break-ins.

    “There were kind of larger scale operations going on, particularly with package thefts,” Warnick said in an interview. “In one case, we had a suspect going into lobbies of apartment dwellings, grabbing handfuls of boxes, bringing them out to a car which was being driven by another perpetrator, and going back into other dwellings.”

    Violent crime also increased slightly during the month of April, from 16 cases in March to 18 cases last month. On April 23, CPD reported a homicide case on Harvard Avenue, where a suspect was arrested for fatally stabbing a homeless man.

    Still, April saw a slight decrease in total criminal incidents compared to last year. April 2019 saw 175 incidents; 156 incidents occurred last month.

    In response to the pandemic, CPD and emergency services in Cambridge have taken precautions to curb the spread of the virus among employees. In late March, the department transitioned many services over the phone and restructured officers’ work hours to longer but fewer shifts. CPD has also deferred many of its calls to the Cambridge Fire Department as well as Pro EMS, the city’s local ambulance provider.

    1. Cool website!

      My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – abctudo.com – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

      But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across abctudo.com, what usually happens?

      Is your site generating leads for your business?

      I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

      Not good.

      Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

      You can –

      Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

      Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

      That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

      Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

      Wouldn’t that be cool?
