The reporting shows a mostly upward trend in the occurrence of most violent crimes recorded in Philadelphia between December 29, 2011 to January 1, 2012 when compared to the same time period the previous year. Most notable is the increase in homicides which is nearly double comparable to the last 3 years. There has also been an increase in property crime overall, however this isn't as dramatic.

On August 31, 2011 Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter and Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey announced the release of the 2011 progress report along with a five year plan for the future of the Philadelphia Police Department. The report examined crime in Philadelphia since 2008 which showed crime had been on the decline in the city.

When Nutter was sworn in for another term as mayor on January 2, 2012 he vowed to keep working towards lowering the crime rate by focusing on improving schools and cracking down on gangs that lure in young black men which account for almost three fourths of murder victims in Philadelphia. Nutter said, "Some of these young kids that are terrorizing our neighborhoods are themselves just frightened kids. They're not all bad kids, and they weren't born like this. There are kids who lack opportunity, who believe they have no future, that there is no door open to them."
