NJ Spotlight has created an interactive map of 2011 crime rates in New Jersey

Neptune and Asbury Park had the highest crime rates per 1,000 residents in 2011 among nearby municipalities, with 72.1 victims per 1,000 residents in Neptune and 95.6 in Asbury Park.

Wall fared better than the majority of its neighbors, with only Howell (14.8 per 1,000) and Brielle (11.5 per 1,000) boasting a lower crime rate in 2011. The township's rate was on par with Brick's 19.2 per 1,000.
