This investigation found that Houston police often don't label crimes as crimes. This means that many crimes never end with a criminal investigation. Not only does this practice mean victims often don't receive any closure, but also that Houston has fewer crime statistics to report to the national government. These low numbers are misleading and make Houston look much safer than it really is.
