Spokane Valley Police Department: Residential Burglaries Decrease

Posted: Updated:

**Official Press Release**

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - The Spokane County Sheriff's Office and Spokane Valley have seen a steady decrease in the number of residential burglaries over the summer months.  In unincorporated Spokane County, residential burglaries have decreased 7.9% from June, 2012, compared to July, 2012.  There has also been a 40.6% decrease from July 1-July 13, 2012, compared to August 1-August 13, 2012.

 There has been a 27.3% decrease in residential burglaries in Spokane Valley from July 1-July 13, 2012, compared to August 1-August 13, 2012.
 
The decrease in residential burglaries in Spokane Valley and unincorporated Spokane County shows the success of the implementation of the Sheriff's Office Burglary Task Force.  This decrease is also directly associated with citizens of Spokane County providing investigators with valuable, continuous tips all summer long.  Investigators rely on information citizens have provided by the reporting of suspicious people, vehicles and activity in their neighborhoods.  Without this type of ongoing assistance from the community, it would be very difficult for the Sheriff's Office to achieve this type of decrease with any type of crime in our community.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas. >>
