Chief Of Police To Discuss Crime Statistics and Department Success For First Quarter 2008

April 11, 2008

On Tuesday April 15, 2008 at 10:00 am, Mesa Police Chief George Gascón will discuss crime statistics and department successes for first quarter 2008. A comparison of crime statistics for the first quarter of the last two years in relation to 2008 will be presented. Crime and arrest information will be discussed in relation to the Mesa Police Department's 2008 work plan.

By utilizing crime statistics and analysis, the police department is able to properly disperse its resources throughout the city. It is important for citizens to familiarize themselves with these statistics in order to create and maintain successful partnerships throughout the community, that ultimately help to reduce and eliminate criminal activity. Making the community a safer place not only involves the police department, but also the citizens that call Mesa their home.

Members of the media are invited to attend the news conference. The news conference will be held at Mesa Police Department Headquarters, 130 North Robson, in the auditorium.

During the news conference, an award will be presented to a retail company who has gone above and beyond to enhance their partnership with the Mesa Police Department in an effort to prevent criminal activity at their stores.
