You can feel safe walking through the large majority of Sacramento's streets and neighborhoods, the latest police statistics show.

The city saw fewer homicides - 29 - last year than during any other year since 1973. Robberies dropped 50 percent from 2007 to 2014; rapes fell 60 percent;  aggravated assaults fell 35 percent.

The violent crime rate was 6.2 per 1,000 residents in 2014, down by 45 percent from 2007.

Large swaths of North Natomas, South Land Park, the Pocket, Tahoe Park and Colonial Village have seen hardly any violent crimes in the last two years.

More than 90 percent of the city's 570 police grids saw no murders in the last two years. About 60 percent saw one or fewer robberies per year and about half saw two or fewer assaults per year.

There were exceptions: Violent crime is still common in parts of Old North Sacramento and Midtown; along the K Street corridor downtown; and in south Sacramento near Mack Road and Stockton Avenue.

This map shows the number of violent crimes - murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault - in each grid between January 2013 and November 2014.
