The Lord at Work

We were spared serious weather. Still, wet leaves on the roadway can be like driving on an emergency vehicle operations SKID PAD. Sudden breaking or turns may find you in an uncontrolled skid into parked cars or worse, into an intersection and collision with another vehicle.

On a happier note - the main storm cells  passed, street flooding receded and the good news was shared with this photo.

 Sacramento Police K9 Bodie did just that !

No one in Sacramento would reveal the violent criminal history of shooter Lucas Jerome Webb. WHY?  FACT: Lucas had been released from the Butte County Jail due to overcrowding  when he was shot and killed Friday by a Sacramento police officer after he shot the officer's K9 partner.

After Crimewatch posted this violent offender's Butte County history on Sunday, 5-20-12 no media picked up on the story from Chico news media. Local media then shocks us with a sob story from parolee Leslie McCulley, the shooter's girlfriend and accomplice.


 

Crime in Progress - Police couldn't come at all!

8:09 PM - 17 minutes inside 5:32 AM - 3 minutes inside 6:33 AM - No Entry

Four attempted break-ins in 12 hours - two succeeded with property losses!
Sacramento Police were called - No Response! - None of the evidence booked!

August 22, 2013 - 5:35 AM

A high ranking member of the Department explains:

"As you know, with our reduced resources, many of the types of crimes you mention ... we no longer have the ability to investigate, and in fact may not even respond to the call."

 

MIDTOWN GRAFFITI VANDALISM VICTIM?

PLEASE CLICK HERE

If a Crimewatch Volunteer photographed graffiti vandalism on or about your property  and left a note with you or a tenant, please help our Police and DA with this criminal prosecution. We hope to insure victim restitution from the two adults now in custody now. Both have prior offenses.

The District Attorney's Office is accepting the new evidence for victims.

ELEMENTS OF THE CRIME!

TO THE CRIMINALS DELIGHT! "The Police Department will only investigate the most serious and high profile crimes and will no longer conduct follow up investigations of misdemeanor and most felony property crimes."

NEXT TIME YOU DRIVE WITH YOUR FAMILY and LOVED ONES or CALL 911!: "The elimination of traffic enforcement teams will result in increased traffic accidents and DUI related incidents. The Police Department will no longer conduct field reporting except in the most serious traffic incidents. Victims will be required to self‐report online or make reports at the one remaining public counter at Police Headquarters."

 

July 30, 2009 - 1.46 sworn officers per 1,000 residents?
San Francisco has 2.74 officers per 1,000 residents.

July 2010 Current Chief Sam Somers - 804 officers serving us!

June 2011 - Cut 167 police positions - crime will go down?

WHAT IS THE NUMBER TODAY?
616 Sworn Officers

2011 - They called them savings?

Fox 40 news June 7, 2011: "The Sacramento Police department issued a Tweet right after the council vote: “We will be laying off 150+ police staff, eliminate narc / gangs / pop / mounted / bikes / boat / magnet prog / traffic / car theft det.” 

2012 - What has changed?

December 2011 we filed a Public Records Act request.
(Operations Patrol Staffing Levels) we received the table below.

Comparing this data to the current City budget and a more recent "Program Costs by Category" report reviewed at the Special Council Session on January 24th at 2 PM, no one can seem to provide staffing numbers that seem consistent. The report City Council approved puts patrol at 490 officers. Also according to that report, Patrol is $10 million in the red budget-wise against the total of $11 million overall for SPD. If cuts to SPD do move forward, ask yourself just where will those cuts come from? The ANSWER? We have information Patrol is well under 300 officer to cover 400 square miles on 6 Patrol Districts.

Speaking only as the webmaster and host for Crimewatch, I've done my best to bring facts to the table and ask questions that have gone unanswered for almost  two decades.

Most of our citizens don't seem overly concerned with the losses to police resources, overconcentration of convicted felons being dumped on our streets and the crime that results. If our neighbors are that disengaged what might we have expected had Checks and Balances Act of 2012 appeared on a ballot?

 

LETS US NEVER FORGET
Sacramento's Firefighters

The firefighters in our city have made many concessions to help with closing budget deficits caused, in part, by a poorly managed City of Sacramento.

What if they hadn't come in time?
 

Well... they did then - 19th and H Street - Can they after June 30, 2012?

A defective gas heater exploded with an elderly woman trapped inside. The landlord had illegally installed double key dead bolt locks and the lady could not get to her keys. A neighbor kicked the door in while we put water on the wood shingled roof of the two story Victorian next door and helped evacuate those neighbors.

FAST response from Sacramento Fire Department saved lives and eight rental units next door to Crimewatch Center that night.
