While the pandemic initially led to a drastic reduction in violent crime, civil unrest, and mass demonstrations, these risk factors have all seen spikes in the U.S. and globally as daily life and travel begin to pick back up.
- In the U.S., violent crime, in particular homicides, are up significantly in major cities. Mass shootings, effectively paused during the pandemic, have seen a resurgence since March of this year. Incidents have occurred in Atlanta, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Indianapolis. As workplaces and schools bring back staff and students, mass shootings will increase in frequency.
- In Colombia, nationwide anti-government protests turned violent following the introduction of a tax reform bill. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Bogota, Cali, Medellin, and other cities to protest the bill and the government. Protests turned violent with riots, roadblocks, looting, and deployment of riot police. Dozens of people were killed.
- Mexico is on track to set a record for homicides, breaking the record set in 2020 amid cartel clashes and security operations targeting organized crime leadership.
