    Over this summer, two bikes were stolen from two different neighbors' back yards. Neither reported them, because their insurance deductible was higher than the value of the bikes. Garages have been tagged and my neighbors have overpainted the tagging without reporting it. An attempt purse snatch down the block from me resulted in the young woman moving back to Michigan, but never reporting it, since nothing was actually stolen.
    A policy change at 911 a couple of years ago has resulted in not sending a beat car out anymore for many classifications of crimes if they have 'already' occurred and aren't 'in-progress' jobs. You get referred to 311 to make a report and if people don't follow through, or if the crime classification is downgraded by the non-emergency call-taker, crime is effectively killed.
    Longer response from the police is part of it, but yes, a lot of crime is simply not being reported.
