The violent crime went up 2.6 percent in Oregon in 2007, the largest increase since Measure 11’s mandatory minimum sentences went into effect in 1995.

Nationally, the violent rate crime dropped 1.4 percent.

Oregon’s property crime rate dropped 4 percent and has dropped a total of 20 percent since 2005, the second largest drop in the country, according to the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission.

Oregon voters face two November ballot measures that would increase prison sentences for burglars, car thieves and drug dealers.
