To Our Community:
It is a true pleasure to present the Police Department’s
Annual Report for 2016. 2016 was a very exciting year for the Police Department
with some significant outcomes to share:
First and foremost, in 2016 the Town of Danville saw the
lowest property crime rate since incorporation. After seeing increases in 2014
and 2015, the Police Department instituted a number of initiatives which have
led to an outstanding result. Along
those same lines, incidents of violent crime continue to decline. Danville has
historically benefited from low levels of violent crime. While the overall
total remains low, in the last six years, violent crime has dropped 50% from 26
incidents to 13.
We continue to focus on traffic safety. In 2016, the overall
number of accidents increased by 12%; however, that increase is attributed to
accidents involving property damage only. Injury related accidents continue to
decline with a 37% reduction since 2014.
Communicating with our residents is a high priority, which
led to the creation of new community outreach programs this year; recess with
the Cops and Coffee & Cocoa with the Cops. Both of these programs helped us
reach out to the community, provide education about the services offered by the
Police Department, and most importantly, learn from our residents about their
expectations. Our theme during these outreach events is that we want to police
Danville the way Danville wants to be policed, something we can only accomplish
by soliciting feedback from our residents.
Another highlight was the finalization of our ALPR and
SitCam programs in November. These camera systems have already made significant
contributions in the short time they have been operational. We anticipate they
will continue to be a valuable asset to our crime fighting efforts for years to
We look forward to the challenges 2017 brings and know that
we will continue to be innovative in both crime education and community
outreach. We sincerely appreciate your support and are very proud to serve our
