APD NW November Newsletter

Commander Sanchez Corner

I hope that everyone enjoyed the first full month of fall. We continued to conduct “Cop on a Corner” briefings throughout the area command. Although we have seen some involvement from the community we would like to see more of you come out to meet our officers. These
events will give you the opportunity to attend police field briefings where you can interact with the officers assigned to your neighborhoods and provide in part information and ask questions. The briefings will serve as a way to exchange information. It is also an opportunity for officers to provide you with crime prevention tips and tools. We will be sending out flyers with the locations and times of our next two events.

During the month of October we saw some decrease on our aggravated assaults
from our previous month, however, our robberies do continue to rise. Overall we
do continue to see increases in our violent crimes. However, we also had another
decrease on our overall numbers for property crimes. We saw an increase in burglaries of storage units and are working on operations to address those.
