The Police Department regularly reviews crime data in search of suspects, methods of operation and trends. This is one to ensure our resources are deployed in the most effective manner. On a monthly basis, we conduct a "Crime Watch" meeting, where department members from all regions of the department converge to review this data. The aim of these gatherings is to communicate about crime related information and then generate creative and innovative solutions to disrupt crime patterns. The desired goal is to impact developing trends in their infancy, before they advance into long term tendencies that can have a negative impact on residents.
