I am pleased to tell you that Part One crime, which are the most serious type's of crime (such as homicide, rape, robbery, burglaries), is down by 9.4% when comparing 2013 to 2012. I attribute this to both the hard work of our officer's here in North County as well as to you, our citizens, taking an active role in your neighborhoods. Thank you for all of your efforts; let's aim for an even greater reduction in crime for 2014!
Although crime is down as a whole, vehicle theft and burglaries continue to be a problem for all of us. Please do not leave your vehicle running unattended with the keys left in it. Also, continue calling either 911 or (314) 889-2341 when you see suspicious person(s) or vehicles in your neighborhood.
