Anaheim’s crime rate dropped about 10 percent in 2009, according to an FBI report released this week.
The decline was double the national average, the report said. The statistics mirror numbers released last week by the California Department of Justice.
“There are several pieces that must come together to successfully battle crime,” said Sgt. Rick Martinez. “Good police work combined with strong community support are among the key ingredients.”
In Anaheim, both are evident, he said. As examples, he pointed out how the homicide bureau solved all 2009 killings – and four old cases.
“And we continue to develop deep and meaningful partnerships with Anaheim schools, the business community and in neighborhoods across the city,” he said. “We are watching out for each other – and working together to keep Anaheim safe.”
