Oakland may have only moved down one spot in this year's rankings by Law Street, but the city saw a notable decline in violent crime of almost 15 percent. The only category the city saw an increase in was rape, with the biggest drop coming from the number of robberies. Oakland saw nearly 1,500 fewer robberies in 2014, for a decline of about 30 percent.
