April 2019 Statistics
April 2019 statistics compared to April 2018 statistics show a 24 percent decrease in “Calls for Service” and an 82 percent increase 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 12 increase compared to the month of April last year. We issued 427 citations and 699 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 April 2019 compared to the month of April 2018 stayed the same with no Homicides, no Sexual Assaults, no Motor Vehicle Thefts, no Aggravated Assaults, No Robberies and no Arson. Burglaries decreased from one (1) last April to zero (0) this April (homes under construction.) Thefts increased from five (5) to six (6.)
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.
In April of 2019 we did have the following public Nuisance Crimes, which is an act or omission that obstructs, damages, or inconveniences the rights of a community. A common nuisance or a public nuisance is punishable as a misdemeanor. The term public nuisance covers a wide variety of minor crimes that threaten the health, morals, safety, comfort, convenience, or welfare of a community.
