The numbers behind Beachwood Place Mall's crime troubles

BEACHWOOD, OH (WOIO) - In the past year the Beachwood Police Department has been called to Beachwood Place Mall 1,489 times.

That's a little more than four times a day from March 2017 through March 18, 2017.

To be clear and fair to Beachwood Place those calls represent every kind of situation police could be called to a mall.

Everything from keys locked in a car, to medical situations, to a garage door open, to theft and like this weekend, a shooting.

The Cleveland 19 Investigative Team requested and sorted through all 1,489 calls and filtered out what would be of concern, or even potentially dangerous to people who shop there.

Breaking down the reports:

  • Two shootings in the past year (plus one brandishing of a gun in the parking lot)
  • 10 fights both inside and in the parking lot
  • 13 disturbances (ie. yelling, disorderly conduct, unruly, verbal altercations)
