It is my distinct pleasure to present the Broadview Police Department's 2012 Annual Report. The information contained in in this report is intended to provide objective information to our citizens, the Board, and to you for evaluating the services provided by our Department. The report is designed to provide complete information on the operations of the Police Department during 2012 including our mission and activity levels during the year. This report represents the second such report during my tenure as Chief of Police and the preparation of this report was a cooperative effort between the officers, command staff and administration of this Department.
During 2012, the Broadview Police Department remained true to its value system and each officer displayed the highest regard for the safety and security of the residents of Broadview. We continued throughout the year to obtain every available resource to assist in our mission and to forge strong partnerships towards our crime fighting efforts. I have been impressed by the individual efforts that have been exerted by each officer and civilian employee. We hold our residents' concerns in the highest regards.
I am pleased to say that during the year there have been measurable successes that have demostrated the frutis of our labors. Despite, "work more with less" we have continued to provide more police services through outstanding individual efforts by our officers and staff. While overall activities and arrests increased for the year, "violent crime" continues to decrease. Our arrests and clearance rates were among the highest we have achieved. Aggravated Battery was at its lowest in the past five years as was Criminal Tress-pass to Vehicle in our community. The number one victimization crime of Burglary has been reduced from 57 in 2007 to 23 in 2012. However, plans are being developed by our supervisors to continue to reduce these incidents. The reductions in some categories have not been statistical flukes, but instead are a direct reflection of the extraordinary pro-active enforcement efforts of our officers and supervisors. We have continued to use the intelligence led-policing model by using technology to our greatest advantage and our efforts have begun to bear fruit.
We are cognizant that our task is not over and challenges of the future will be even greater. To overcome current and future challenges, I requested to hire more police officers. You and the Board's understanding of these challenges made it possible to hire one (1) officer in 2011, three (3) in 2012, and one (1) in 2013 for a total of five (5) under my tenure as Chief of Police. The hiring of these officers will assist our efforts in facing the pressure of high crimes beyond our borders with those who wish to prey upon our residents.
This report contains administrative analysis and provides all of the necessary quantitative and qualitative information the reader needs in order to make an informed decision on the quality of law enforcement in our community.
I would like to thank our residents who have provided incredible support and encouragement in our efforts throughout the year. I also would like to acknowledge the continuing support of our Board who have given us the tools to accomplish our mission, and you, for your continued faith and support of our efforts. Most importantly, I must thank each of the employees of the Broadview Police Department with whom I have had the honor to serve with.
Luis C. Tigera
Chief of Police
