Officers with the Amherstburg detachment of Windsor Police Service have been averaging about 15 calls per day since the switchover and nabbed a suspect in a pharmacy robbery, according to Deputy Police Chief Brad Hill.
Hill told CTV Windsor at Wednesday’s Police Services Board meeting – which Amherstburg Mayor Aldo DiCarlo attended as a freshly sworn-in member – that there had been 327 calls for service since the transition.
He said Windsor’s specialized units paid dividends in the robbery investigation and that the Arson unit was dispatched to probe a suspicious fire.
But why wait for statistics at police board meetings when you can track crime trends in real time?
Reported crimes in Amherstburg are now visible on the Crime Reports system used by Windsor Police.
Crimes were previously visible on the CrimePlot system but the data displaying there now is several years old.
