What is the police department doing to reduce property crime? Well, let's start with the fact that most of our property crimes are committed by habitual offenders. Every week command staff review intelligence, trends, locations, suspect information and other variables during our COMPSTAT meetings. Staff is deployed to problem areas and suspect information and other pertinent information is shared. A lot of resources are put into investigating and solving property crimes. As I mentioned in my last post prevention is our best solution, but when crime happens we want to catch the folks responsible.
We catch a lot of these property crime crooks and many fail to appear for court or don't follow their conditions of probation. In an effort to have a greater impact on property crime offenders, we recently started working with local media by identifying wanted property crime offenders weekly. So far we have been very successful in arresting those identified. Additionally, we have received tremendous feedback from the community on this new effort. Our Property Crimes Unit has some of our best cops that put tremendous effort into catching crooks. Thanks Sergeant Stolee and crew! Keep up the good work.
