Anne Arundel is a county in the state of Maryland. Annapolis, perhaps most well-known for the United States Naval Academy, is its county seat. It was named for Anne Arundell, who was the daughter of the Baron Arundell of Wardour. It was originally part of St. Mary’s County back when Maryland was known as the Province of Maryland, and Anne Arundel became the third of Maryland’s 23 counties in 1650.
It is home to a number of parks and recreation facilities, and boasts close proximity to Washington, D.C., Alexandria, Arlington and Baltimore.
Anne Arundel and its communities make up an estimated 588 square miles of the state of Maryland. It has a population of more than 555,700 people, with a median age of 38 – right on par with the state figures. Nearly 55% of Anne Arundel’s residents are female. Known as one of the more affluent counties in the state, Anne Arundel residents reported a median household income of more than $80,000. Housing prices in the region also top the state average at approximately $470,000.
Industries and Jobs
Like many communities in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Metro Area, Anne Arundel County is home to many state agency headquarters. The Department of Agriculture, Department of Housing and Community Development, the Aviation Administration and the Department of Transportation all have headquarters in the area. The presence of the United States Naval Academy serves as another economic catalyst for the region.
The County is also home to a number of medical facilities, including Anne Arundel Medical Center and Baltimore Washington Medical Center.
Although Anne Arundel is considered to be one of the more affluent areas of the state, its proximity to urban areas and large population make it no stranger to a variety of crimes, including those of a violent nature.
Violent Crimes in Anne Arundel County
Violent criminal acts – from rape or murder to non-negligent manslaughter or robbery – affect communities across the country. Over the last year, there were approximately 1.1 million violent crimes in the United States. Although violent crime rates plummeted to a five-year low back in 2013, crimes that involve force or the threat of force continue to occur in many communities throughout the United States, including areas like Anne Arundel County. Other types of violent crimes, including burglary, motor vehicle theft and larceny-theft, are also offenses that people may be charged with, and which need professional criminal defense representation.
