October 2018 statistics compared to October 2017 statistics show a six percent decrease in “Calls for Service” and a 60 percent decrease in traffic accidents.
What are “Calls for Service?” This is ANY incident or concern in which you may call us for when you are in need of assistance.
Traffic "contacts" had a 17 percent decrease compared to the month of October last year. We issued 267 citations and 569 warnings. (On some contacts more than one warning or citation is issued.) These numbers reflect our interest to educate and remind people of what their responsibilities are on the roadway and to make our community a safer place to drive, bike and walk.
“Part One Crimes” for the month of October 2018 compared to the month of October 2017 stayed the same with no Homicides, no Sexual Assaults, no Motor Vehicle Thefts, no Aggravated Assaults, and no Arson. Burglaries increased to three (homes under construction) and we had one Robbery which was cleared as unfounded. Thefts increased from four (4) to nine (9.)
Part One Crimes are essential quality of life crimes that have adverse effect on the community. These crimes are the most serious offenses against the community. These crimes are based on what “city crime rates” reflect, based on population.
We contribute many of these low numbers regarding serious crime to YOU, the community. Your aggressive style, awareness and willingness to get involved, help us deter crime.
When you see something suspicious, YOU call us, and we appreciate it. We have your back, and we know you have ours.
