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.
