When we look back at 2009, it has been a busy year but a good one for your Police Department. In the year 2000 we received 2,029 calls for police service and in 2009 we received 3,365 for a 65% increase in our call volume. The calls per officer increased 29% over 2000, due to the fact that we were authorized two more officers two years ago. In 2000 we wrote 510 case reports and in 2009 we had 520 reports, this is an indication that our rate of crime has remained fairly stable though our population has increased by 36% over that same period. Your officers had a clearance or solution rate on 65% of those cases as compared to a 33% clearance rate in 2000 or an improvement of 96%. This is due to more in- depth follow-up at the scene, an officer that is dedicated to follow-up investigations and a policy of 100% review of all cases with directed follow-ups whenever a lead is possible. In 2000 we wrote 759 tickets and in 2009 that increased to 1,821 tickets issued, though we still hear complaints that we should write more citations. This year your officers patrolled 93,734 miles compared to 63,861 in 2003; this is due to a larger patrol area and having two more patrol officers. 2009 shows that while we are busier due to our grow- ing community, it is still one of the safest places to live due to our flatter crime, rates. We wish you a Happy New Year and we thank you again for your support. Did You Know? (NAPS)--Annet King, director of global education  ,_ .....

Thanks to the generos- ity of community mem- bers, past can drives have been very successful for the Troop. With a growing Troop, there seems to be an ongoing need for addi- tional or replacement equipment. Events such as the can drive make a sig- nificant contribution in making those needed pur- chases.
