School’s out, pools are open and temperatures are rising. But temperatures aren’t the only thing increasing, according to the Department of Justice, crime is 10.5% more common in the summer than the winter. The Urban Institute also adds that the most targeted places “are those located in public spaces, or [areas] that are open to public view.
