Both numbers are accurate, but use a different calculation technique.  Example DAs office counts attempted break-ins towards the total burglary count while West  Valley Patrol discards attempted break-ins as part of their total.

These suspects  are believed to be responsible for entering a dozen locked and unlocked vehicles in the  18000 block area of Montpere Way in the early morning hours of September 6. The  suspects took garage door remotes from two vehicles and accessed the garage at  each of those residences. The suspects took an assortment of property, including a  bicycle, cash, paperwork, and work equipment.  The four suspects were identified through an extensive follow-up investigation of the  September 6 crimes. During the investigation, detectives determined that these  suspects were also responsible for numerous other crimes throughout the South Bay  area, including carjacking, auto theft, and firearms possession. The suspects were also  involved in multiple police pursuits, recklessly evading through public streets.  Detectives will continue their investigation of this crew, as they believe this crew to be  responsible for numerous other burglaries in the City.

All other compatible vegetation will remain, such as  the Hollywood junipers and other shrubs.    SVCE Green Prime Results    With the startup of Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE), the City Council considered  whether City facilities would switch from the regular PG&E energy sources to the basic  50% renewable/50% carbon-free Green Start option, or to the more environmentally  sustainable 100% renewable Green Prime option. The December 7, 2016 report to  Council estimated a change to Green Start would save the City about .5 to 1% ($1,100)  per year, whereas upgrading to the 100% renewable Green Prime option would cost  the City about 4% ($8,500) more per year. The Council determined it was best to be  environmentally proactive, and chose to go with the Green Prime option despite the  higher cost.  As a follow-up, SVCE prepared an analysis for the City to assess whether the switch to  the Green Prime 100% renewable electricity power sources was in line with  expectations presented to the Council. As it turns out, Green Prime electricity cost only  about $3,800 more than PG&E over the course of the 2017/18 Fiscal Year. In part, this  lower than expected cost was due to PG&E’s 10% rate increase in March of 2018,  whereas Green Prime rates stayed the same. For Fiscal Year 2018/19, the City’s 100%  renewable Green Prime energy is now estimated to only be about 1% ($2,400) more  expensive than PG&E.    California Computer Science Curriculum Updates    From the committee:    We are pleased to announce that the Instructional Quality Commission (IQC) took  action to begin the public review and comment period for the draft Computer Science  Strategic Implementation Plan (CSSIP).
