I told you as we received the remaining reports from MPD, I’d add them in this separate look at crime and code enforcement through June 30, 2016.
Middletown Division of Police continues to get the job done. In addition to all of their community outreach, they are cracking down on crime throughout the city. Year to date, Part 1 serious crimes are down another 5% over the same period last year (1,649 last year vs. 1,566 this year.) Thefts are down 7.4% over the same period last year (1,173 last year vs. 1,086 this year). Drug related arrests are up almost 60% year to date (359 ytd vs. 223 last year).
