Billings Crime Map

BILLINGS, Mont. - With November in the books it's time to take another look at the Billings Crime Numbers as shown on the Billings Crime Map.

In November 24 sex crimes were reported to police. That's a 26% increase from October which saw just 19 sex crimes reported.

The biggest month-to-month increase came in fraud cases. 92 incidents were reported in November which represented a 91% increase from October with just 48 cases of fraud reported. It also represents a 6-month high with the next highest month on record coming in June.

We should note that the Billings Crime Map only shows data dating back to June 4th.

Burglary reports were also up in November, but the 86 reported incidents fall in line with the number of cases reported in June through September.

DUI's saw a 12% decline in November and weapons complaints were down 32%.

November also saw one homicide reported, but this information was not included on the Billings Crime Map because of the way it was called into police. The death was only classified a homicide after the fact.

According to Billings Police PIO Lt. Brandon Wooley, Billings Crime Map data is pulled from dispatch logs which are not amended if a call turns out to be something other than the original call.
