When I began writing this article for The Democrat, “Tips From The Chief,” the goal was to inform the citizens of Bartow about current topics. I have focused many of my topics on areas that we at the Bartow Police Department were interested in improving in order to lower our crime rate. Today is really no different.
I have often discussed the crime rate, and even boasted that our crime rate was relatively low. In fact, it has dropped every year since 2008. Still, however, one of the biggest issues that we deal with is property crime. Property crimes are a difficult area to manage for law enforcement agencies because our best approach to the prevention of this crime is through the community. This is where we need your help.
