Captain Troy Bergstrom gave updated reports on police staffing (64 patrol officers total + 8 supervisors) and number of calls -- 41,000 calls reported, plus another 40,000 officer generated reports (on site incidents). He reported that daytimes were actually their busiest times of the day. Officer Carlos Cortez went through some recent crime reports -- thefts through garage door entries still high on the list, keep main doors and side entry doors completely closed. Don’t be afraid to report suspect activities -- several reports from residents have resulted in arrests recently. No stats yet, but they expect a rise in DUI’s with new marijuana laws (as Colorado stats are already showing).
Mary Helen Ivers (Police Volunteer) discussed how to get Neighborhood Watch groups started (guide on the Police website), and advised to keep NW meetings social events. Community Relations Liaison Rob Baquera advised of the Surveillance Camera Registration program -- sign up on the Police website if you have a system; send information to the police if you find information that might assist in a criminal activity investigation.
