Last Month in Arrests: The Numbers from Police Headquarters

Figures announced by chief Robert Gagne at this week's meeting.

 

Chief Robert Gagne announced arrest reports for the month of August at Tuesday's Police Commission meeting (4:30 p.m. at police headquarters on Lambert Road.)

  • 39 Criminal Arrests
  • 239 Motor Vehicle Arrests
  • 0 Residential Burglaries
  • 1 Commercial Burglary
  • 2 Stolen Motor Vehicles, 2 Recovered
  • 34 Larcenies
  • 96 Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • 2,607 Calls
  • 543 Reports

In his report, Gagne also outlined expenses for the department: on August 21, the department ordered two new police cars, both Dodge Cruisers. The department will deck the cars with all-new accessories: new cage assemblies, consoles, light bars and the mobile data terminals used by officers to find information quickly on the road.

"The older stuff can't be transferred," said Gagne. "Most of that stuff was getting very old anyways, and we were taking it in and out of cars for several years. It was getting old and tired. As we get new cars, we'll be able to transfer [this equipment] in and out again."

Gagne says the department tries to time the purchase of mobile data terminals to coincide with new cars.

"New car, new computer, that's a good rotation to be on," he said.

I think it would be a benefit to taxpayers if the Chief was able to break down the number of calls for the commercial district and residential areas separately.
