Working with the community is the name of the game when providing police services in 明升线上, 当局表示,此举正在取得成效.

The city of 明升线上 saw lower numbers of certain crimes committed thanks in part to the department’s community policing strategy, 明升线上 Police Department Assistant Chief Rusty 苏亚雷斯说.

“Our officers are doing an outstanding job as far as being out there, being productive and being visible to help prevent all types of crimes in our city,”他说. “We take pride in our jobs and try to do the best job we can. Hopefully, that prevents criminals from doing something they’re not supposed to be doing.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation recently released data from its Uniform Crime Reporting program, which generates reliable statistics for use in law enforcement, 根据联邦调查局的网站.

The program has provided crime statistics since 1930 and includes data from more than 18,000个城市, 大学和学院, 县, state, tribal and federal law enforcement agencies, 联邦调查局说.

Agencies voluntarily participate by submitting their crime data, which 明升线上 Police Department did.

The Uniform Crime Report breaks down crimes into two categories: violent crimes and property crimes.

局里考虑的是杀人案, 强奸, 抢劫 and aggravated assault as violent crimes, 同时考虑纵火, 入室盗窃, 盗窃或偷窃, and motor-vehicle theft as property crimes.

整体, 明升线上 saw decreases in the total numbers of both violent crimes and property crimes in a comparison of 2019 and 2020, the years for which the FBI released the most recent data.

The city did better than the state of Texas in overall numbers and in particular areas, 苏亚雷斯说.

“As far as our numbers compared to the state of Texas, there were several areas where we saw a decrease,”他说. “We saw an increase in aggravated assaults and violent crimes in the state of Texas. 这里明升在线看到了下降. 那太好了.”

Statewide, violent crime increased by about 7.9%. While property crimes across Texas decreased by about 2.8%, 明升线上 saw a slightly larger drop of about 5.占所有财产犯罪的2%.

在本地, 凶杀暴力犯罪, 抢劫, and aggravated assault took turns in the right direction. Rapes in 明升线上 rose from 11 reported in 2019 to 14 in 2020, an increase of about 27.3%.

Rapes are not always reported in the year that they occur so the UCR numbers are sometimes skewed, 苏亚雷斯说.

But department personnel try to help educate the community in hopes of eliminating sexual assaults, 他说.

“We try to preach always be aware of your surroundings; try to take precautionary measures when you’re out,”苏亚雷斯说.

什么事都不是. 防止性侵犯, which usually happen behind closed doors, 对警察来说很难, 苏亚雷斯说.

Police do what they can when they can to stop the crimes, 他说.

“If we’re in the right spot at the right time, we intervene,”苏亚雷斯说. “But usually, when (a 强奸) happens, we’re not there.”

明升线上 police reported no arsons to the FBI. 部门报告减少了4人.9%和8.25% for the crimes of 入室盗窃 and larceny-theft, respectively.

然而,该市的数据为34.9% year-over-year increase from 43 incidents to 58 incidents of motor-vehicle theft, 根据数据.

Although narcotics use or distribution crimes are not tracked in the UCR program, 他们助长了其他形式的犯罪, 苏亚雷斯说. 明升线上 Police Department targets narcotics offenders in hopes of discouraging other transgressions from happening, 他说.

“Narcotics can be directly correlated to thefts,”苏亚雷斯说. “People are going to start stealing more to feed their habits. 如果明升在线能找到他们的源头, they don’t have that source available to them so they’re less likely to commit a crime to feed the habit.”

警官们进入社区, having their faces seen and talking to residents and business owners helps the department crack down on crime, 他说. Community members should know that the 明升线上 Police Department is here to help and can be called whenever needed, 苏亚雷斯说.

“If you see something, say something,”他说. “If you see someone around who is not normally around the neighborhood, let us know something.”

It’s possible that person is watching the neighborhood or they doing nothing at all harmful. Either way, alerting the police can only help, 苏亚雷斯说.
