2013 Vice


Analysis of Police Department vice reports for 2013 discloses that drug violations are the predominant vice offense reported in Richmond.

Ofense Code Description Count  
DRUG/NARCOTIC VIOLATION 2063 91.6%
DRUG EQUIPMENT VIOLATIONS 88 3.9%
PROSTITUTION 72 3.2%
PORNOGRAPHY/OBSCENE MATERIAL 26 1.2%
PROSTITUTION (ASSISTING/PROMOTING) 2 0.1%
GAMBLING/BETTING/WAGERING 1  
REPEALED - DRUG/NARCOTIC VIOLATIONS 1  
Grand Total 2253  

Over 2/3 of the top 23 blocks for vice in Richmond are associated with rental property and 31% are within RRHA developments.

The vice activity in Richmond thus is concentrated at identifiable properties.  State law declares this activity to be a nuisance and provides abundant criminal and civil authority to end it.  The City should exercise that authority to control nuisance drug, prostitution, and liquor activity.

The 2013 data that support these conclusions are here.
