There can always be one or many factors for seeing increases or decreases in our crime stats, stated Detachment Commander Sergeant Darryl Peppler. A decrease in crime can often be associated to just a few clients having left town, either through moving away or being incarcerated. Other factors include proactive patrols in high risk areas at certain times, stronger enforcement, use of community groups such as Citizens on Patrol, and one of the best factors, a person turns over a new leaf and they change their wayward behaviors.
