Red Bluff Police Department
           Mid-Year Review




                 8/30/2010
                                                                   Chief’s Message
                                                               The Mid-Year Review is a new report for the Red Bluff Police Department. In previous years we have created Quarterly
                                                Reports that culminated in a comprehensive Annual Report that is issued around March of each year. This year we eliminated the
                  2010 Mid-Year Report

                                                Quarterly Reports and made the transition to a Mid-Year Review.

                                                The new report has a new look that I hope you will find both pleasing and informative. This report is intended to provide an overview
                                                of the first six months of the 2010 calendar year. Much of the data is compared with the first six months of 2009 in order to provide
                                                perspective.

                                                You will note that there was an approximate 3% drop in total calls for service when compared with the first six months of 2009.
CHIEF’S MESSAGE




                                                However, please take the time to review all of the statistical data as this slight drop in total calls can be attributed to a couple of key
                                                factors; the most significant being a reduction in both sworn (police officers) and non-sworn staff (Community Service Officers).

                                                Please note that Part I crimes saw an overall increase of 31%; Part I Crimes that increased were Rape (166% increase), Robbery (37%
                                                increase), Assault-Simple (27% increase), Burglary (71 % increase) Theft (44% increase), Motor Vehicle Theft (17 % increase). The
                                                only Part I Crime that realized a decrease was the Assault-Aggravated category. This may be partly due to a change in reporting
                                                criteria that took place in 2009.

                                                There was also a substantial increase in traffic collisions (16% increase) between 2009 and 2010. The
                                                good news here is that there were no fatalities and there was a decrease in injury accidents. The Police
                                                Department will be trying to revitalize it’s traffic program during the 2010/2011 fiscal year in order to
                                                have a greater impact on accident reduction.

                                                The reduction in staffing resulted in a drop in Officer initiated calls for service (traffic stops, citations,
                                                DUI’s, officer observed violations, etc). The Department made adjustments to compensate for the staff
                                                reductions which have allowed us to continue to provide the same great level of service.

                                                Finally, highlighted at the back of this report are some of the significant and high profile crimes. With the
                                                exception of just a few, they are all crimes of violence against people. These are certainly not all of the
                                                crimes against persons occurring in the City of Red Bluff, but certainly reflect a disturbing trend in our community, which is an increase
                                                in crimes against persons.

                                                The members of the Red Bluff Police Department are a group of loyal and dedicated professionals who are motivated to provide the
                                                best possible service to their community. Our motto is “Service with Integrity.” The Department remains committed to Community
                                                Oriented Policing, which is clearly demonstrated by the manner in which the Sergeants have managed their Areas of Responsibility.

                                                    primary function is to deliver initial police services to the community 24 hours a day. The
                                                    Operations Division is commanded by Lt. Kyle Sanders and during the first half of 2010 was staffed
                                                    with four sergeants, one acting sergeant, nine police officers, one dispatch supervisor and five
                                                    dispatchers. These professionals work diligently to respond quickly to calls for service as well as the
                                                    initial response to an emergency or report of a crime. The below charts represent some of the                   Acting Captain Kyle

               Community Oriented Policing Programs
The Police Department divides the City of Red Bluff into five different geographical regions (Areas of Responsibility) and
designates each area with a sergeant and one to two officers for community oriented policing purposes. Each Area of
Responsibility participates in Neighborhood Watch meetings and the Random Citizen Contact (RCC) program. The RCC program
essentially is when an officer contacts a citizen randomly for no other reason than to connect with them and interact positively
outside of a call for service.

         The Dispatch Center is the primary PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) for the
City of Red Bluff. When a dispatcher receives a 911 call, they are trained to ascertain the
nature of the call and to transfer the call to the appropriate agency if it is a medical call (Cal-
Fire), or a crime or traffic related incident occurring outside the city limits (TCSO or CHP).

The dispatchers answer an enormous amount of telephone calls as shown in the below charts:
