Big Four Crimes

The police department works to keep residents and visitors safe using an innovative crime reduction plan titled, “Focus on Four.” This progressive policing philosophy concentrates on four high volume pattern crimes that are gateways to violence: burglary, robbery, auto burglary and auto theft. Since its inception, auto thefts have dropped 92.6%--going from 6,720 in 2002 to 495 in 2014.

The "Focus on Four" plan evolves monthly, weekly and sometimes daily to stay ahead of crime trends and constantly build partnerships with the citizens in our city.
