Spokane Police: Burglaries At Chief Garry Park And In The SCC Area

PRESS RELEASE FROM SPOKANE POLICE: Recently, there have been a number of burglaries in the Chief Garry Park neighborhood. The Spokane Police Department is aware of this string of incidents, due to analysis of police reports as well as neighbors reporting additional details to officers attending the neighborhood council meetings. Crime analysis first noticed several small clusters of burglaries late last week, and the police department was also contacted by a representative of the neighborhood council.

At that time, the nature and number of incidents were overshadowed by several other heavier trends. Additionally, there did not appear to be a great deal of actionable intelligence upon which to focus resources. However, several arrests of prolific offenders connected to that neighborhood were made by proactive units, though not on specifically related charges.

"Frequently, we find that a small number of very busy criminals commit a large percentage of property crime here in Spokane," says SPD Crime Analyst Tom Michaud. "Sometimes we are able to arrest these criminals on outstanding warrants or other charges unrelated to a specific crime trend, but we then discover that they were likely involved in that trend because we see the trend decline shortly after their incarceration."

One of the suggestions made by Major Frank Scalise to the neighborhood council representative was to consider organizing a Block Watch. "Neighbors watching out for neighbors is a strong deterrent to crime," he said. "It also has the additional benefit of getting information about criminal activity to officers earlier in a crime trend or series, which allows us to deploy resources sooner and interrupt the trend before further neighbors are victimized."

"We're still looking at this trend and welcome any further information," says Michaud.  "Whenever we can develop intelligence that can helps put officers in the right place at the right time to catch the bad guy, that's a win."

The Spokane Police Department will continue to work on this and other crime trends throughout our city. Citizens are encouraged to report all crimes and suspicious activity to 911 or Crime Check. While the police department must prioritize our response due to limited resources, we will continually strive to focus on the crime trends that affect our community.
