Community Policing Program at Quail Ridge & Deer Run Crossing Apartments in Carthage

Updated:

NEWS RELEASE FROM THE CARTHAGE POLICE DEPARTMENT

The Carthage Police Department is pleased to announce that it is undertaking its sixth Community Policing project. The department is partnering with the Quail Ridge & Deer Run Crossing Apartments to address complaints of drug activity and property crimes, as well as traffic issues. Officer Doug Dickey has been assigned to work with management and tenants alike to improve the safety and security of the area as well as reduce incidents of criminal activity. Along with patrolling the complex, Officer Dickey will meet with each resident to learn their concerns about criminal activity and take steps to address those concerns.

The Community Policing program has been very successful since it was first begun in 2011. In every project, calls for service were reduced by as much as 60%. Surveys of residents at the end of the projects showed their fear of crime dropped as much as 53%. With each six-month project, one or two officers are assigned full time in a designated area of town, patrolling and working with residents and businesses to reduce crime, make the neighborhoods safer, and foster a spirit of cooperation between citizens and their police department. Past projects have also included officers sponsoring Work Days in which volunteers help residents with property clean-up, clearing overgrown brush, and making repairs. In one spectacular case, officers ram-rodded a special project to replace for an elderly resident her home which had deteriorated to the point of being unsafe.

By citizens working in cooperation with the police and  management, and by staying vigilant and reporting suspicious activity, Carthage PD intends to achieve its goal of making this area crime free.
