Keeping Track Of Crime

Every two weeks Sheriff Don Hunter and his deputies meet to discuss crime trends.

The sheriff demands that all deputies in districts be held accountable for crime in their areas.

This meeting, which uses the COMSTAT method of crime-fighting, allows the leaders in each district to tell the sheriff about their plans to tackle car burglaries, home break-ins and business robberies. Their efforts have resulted in a steady decrease in reported crimes.
