I feel that it’s extremely important that I address some issues relating to crime in Zone 6. Crimes have started to occur in areas where we historically have not had problems, but the men and women in Zone 6 have worked very hard to correct this problem.
I would like to share these numbers with Patch readers:
- Three weeks ago Zone 6 officers arrested six burglars and two robbery perpetrators.
- Two weeks ago six individuals were arrested for an automobile larceny and three burglars were arrested as well.
- Last week three burglars and two robbery perpetrators were arrested.
- So far this week, officers have arrested two individuals for committing snatch thefts at the Starbucks in Little Five Points.
- So far this year, Zone 6 has realized a 44-percent increase in total arrests.
Unfortunately,it is not always practical
