Fluvanna has fared well over the past few years with overall crime on the decline. Between 2010 and 2012 (the latest year for which statistics are available), overall crime decreased by 13 percent. In comparison, crime decreased only 2.5 percent statewide.
Five counties, including Fluvanna, funnel their prisoners into the Central Virginia Regional Jail in Orange County. None of the other counties came close to seeing a crime decrease like Fluvanna’s, he said. In the same time span, Madison’s crime decreased by 3 percent and Greene’s decreased by less than 1 percent. Orange, on the other hand, saw a 22 percent increase in crime, and Louisa faced a 61 percent crime increase.
