Deputies: Community Involvement Reduces Burglaries In Spokane County

Posted: Updated:
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: Unincorporated Spokane County saw an increase in the number of residential burglaries reported to the Sheriff's Office through the first and second quarters of 2012. 

Recognizing these numbers were significantly higher than the same time frames in 2010 and 2011, the Sheriff restructured personnel to combat this increase which proved extremely successful.
 
Hundreds of arrests and charges were not only the result of restructuring personnel, but also the result of community involvement continuously providing the Sheriff's Office with vital information that led to a large majority of these arrests. 

As a result of this combined effort, third quarter residential burglaries in unincorporated Spokane County were the lowest they have been since the first quarter of 2010. 

The Sheriff's Office encourages the continued assistance of the citizens of Spokane County with providing information that assists in reducing all crime rates in our community. 

Below is a list of the unincorporated residential burglaries statistics between 2010 and 2012.
 
2012                                     2011                            2010
       
1st Qtr - 265                           156                             131
 
2nd Qtr - 211                           164                             176

    KHQ.COM - Mid August is about the time that we start to see spiders come into our homes, particularly the hobo spider. August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.>>
