Law enforcement officials reported 84 homicides in Sacramento County during 2010, up sharply from the 70 homicides reported during a slow 2009 but similar to the average over the last decade, police and coroner's data show. The tally would have been lower if not for an abysmal December which saw 11 homicides. South Sacramento, Old North Sacramento and North Highlands remain homicide hotspots.
