There were 22 successful arrests made in October, and a total of 50 criminal and municipal incidents reported in the GP/OKCID area. So a big thank you to our team, who is hard at work – 24/7 – to make the city cleaner and safer.
The criminal activity with the highest frequency is still theft out of motor vehicles, with 12 incidents reported last month. We know we say this all the time, but please please don’t leave valuables in your car. Also remember to park in a well-lit, visible area when possible, and double check that your car is locked before leaving the area.
The second most commonly reported incident is motor vehicle accidents, with 11 reports last month. Keep these three things in mind whenever you are behind the wheel:
- Don’t use your phone whilst driving.
- Keep your headlights on.
- Keep a safe following distance at all times.
There were five arrests made for possession of possible stolen goods. Please be aware of your surroundings at all times, be careful when walking in the streets, and try to walk in groups when possible.
