    Sgt Andre
    Crime Suppression Unit at215 Lakewood Way
    In Zone 3: 37 crimes, 29 arrests. Persistent residential burglary-14. Auto thefts-7. Not allowed to pursue auto thefts because of danger, so refocus effort on prevention. Right now Dodge is a target. Chop shop on Sylvan near Dill got shutdown with 3 arrests. Auto Theft Task Force focuses on these crimes.
    Q: What about residential burglaries?
    A:We have 4 officers dedicated to this. Even if a house is vacant, when a house is broken into this counts against us, so these numbers may seem high. We are trying to educate people about making their houses more secure so they are not a target.
