MAYWOOD, Il. — Crime has decreased in Maywood, a community still reeling from the unsolved murder of a police officer nearly two years ago.

New policing tactics and increased patrols may have helped move the number of murders down from 20 in 2003 to five in 2007 and one so far this year. Other criminal offenses, such as aggravated battery with a gun, have decreased as well, according to statistics from the Illinois State Police and Maywood police.
