The categories of 'Burglary,' 'Suspicious Situation,' and 'Theft' each had 1 case reported. The data indicates a relatively low level of severe crimes such as burglary and theft, with these categories together accounting for only 25% of the total crimes. The majority of the crimes, 37.5%, were arrests, which could indicate effective law enforcement in the place.
