CHICAGO — Police in the nation’s third largest city say overall crime was down 4.2 percent last month compared with a year ago, making it the 30th consecutive month that most categories of crime have dropped in Chicago.

Preliminary data released Sunday shows that homicides fell by 14.4 percent last month compared with June 2010. There were 31 fewer killings.

Aggravated batteries dropped by 14.2 percent and robbery was down nearly 4 percent.

Overall property crime was down nearly 3 percent. But there were increases in three categories: burglary, arson and motor vehicle theft, which was up more than 17 percent.
Chicago police say they’re working aggressively to combat the increases in property crime categories. That includes shutting down two so-called chop shops on the city’s West Side within the last month.
