Redding, Calif -- Violent crimes occur in all cities whether they are big or small, but Redding residents believe for our size it happens a little too often.
"Everyday its something it’s something different," said Lindsay 
Redding police released a first for the city interactive crime map on their website last week showing non –violent crimes, including petty theft.
Now, police have updated it to show where violent crimes happen.
"We had a really good response with the map in general. So we wanted to make it a priority to get those violent crimes in the same time frame out to the public," said crime statistician Mike Murphy.
Police say although people believe crime is out of hand in Redding , the violent crimes are not random.
"The problem with it is if we want to get information out thereare things ... let's say two friend get into a fist fight and one breaks the other's nose, that is an aggrivated assault. That would be reported on there but that's not necessarily indicative of crime happening in your neighborhood," said Murphy. 
However, employees that work near “hot spot” cypress bridge – say the incidents they see doesn’t make them feel any safer. 
"There has been a couple of times we've had to come inside due to the people outside screaming and yelling," said linday 
Officers say – since these crimes aren’t targeting random individuals people should feel safe.
But they do want people to remain vigilant and not become victims.

"It's more about being aware of your surroundings. Dont be a victim and I think our community is really good about not being victims." added Murphy.

After a windy Saturday and fairly breezy Sunday, the wind we've had is weakening as the month of February comes to a close. We can expect a mostly clear first morning of March, followed by more clouds and mild air by the afternoon.
