Mayoral candidate Jean Stothert challenged Mayor Jim Suttle's record on crime prevention Monday and reiterated a pitch to hire more police officers, pointing to what she said was a nearly 10 percent increase in crime in the past two years.
Stothert's campaign, citing Omaha Police Department crime statistics, said overall violent crime in Omaha rose 9.7 percent between 2010 and 2012, while property crime increased 10.6 percent.
