Crime Report for Lake Worth

What was supposed to be a 10 minute PBSO report dragged on for at about forty minutes. Every commissioner had questions of the captain. Some of the highlights of Cpt. Baer's report from Tuesday night's commission meeting:
  • Overall crime down in 2016 by 2.6%. No surprise on this as I had previously stated this would be the case. Not sure if jaywalking is a part of this stat.
  • 10 murders in year 2016--1 murder so far in 2017
  • No mention of the number of shootings which are weekly.
  • Aggravated assault up from 239 to 279
  • Drug overdoes way up and the most in March 2017 since July of last year
  • Property crime down by 5%
  • Vehicle theft down
  • Lots of prostitutes rounded up and two massage parlors raided--one on North Dixie and one near Propaganda nightclub on S. J Street

Thank you sober house industry. We couldn't wait to get home and bolt the door after a short walk in "our" downtown. The crowd outsude Burger king on Dixie makes skin crawl. Imagine inside, send the health department.
