Crime Drops 20% in First Half of 2009

Significant improvement a result of new beat system and proactive policing

SUISUN CITY — Crime in Suisun City declined 20 percent in the first six months of 2009, with 30 percent declines in violent crimes and property crimes leading the way, according to a recent study by the Suisun City Police Department.

Violent crime, such as rape, robbery and aggravated assault, was reduced by 30 percent or more, while burglaries declined by 30 percent and thefts were down by 28 percent.

This significant reduction in Suisun City’s overall crime rate is the result of a Beat System that enhances street patrols and crime response, as well as the continued proactive work by police officers and civilian staff during the past three years, Police Chief Ed Dadisho said.
