April, 2005


There were no burglaries reported during the month of April. We have had two residential burglaries since the beginning of the year.


There was an increase in traffic enforcement in April and specific attention was given to traffic on Pennsylvania close to the Country Club. Officers are attempting to prepare motorists for the summer months, particularly those who use Pennsylvania on a routine basis. During the summer months, there is an increase of pedestrian traffic crossing Pennsylvania and the city is studying the feasibility of installing a crosswalk.


Officer Odom conducted a Triad/Salt Senior Citizens program in April and the program continues to grow. There will be another meeting in May that will be held at All Souls Church. Officer Odom is doing an excellent job in her efforts to expand services to our senior community.  


We have narrowed our search for a part-time dispatcher to two applicants and expect to be making a decision by April 10th.  Police Officer John Mitchell resigned in April to accept a position with the O.U. Health Science Police Department. We wish John the best of luck. We have already initiated a search for a replacement. We have received approximately twenty applications.


Our first stolen auto of the year was reported in April. The vehicle was taken from Wilshire Village and later recovered in Lawton. There were also five larcenies reported for the month. They all involved automobiles that were left unlocked with merchandise left inside that was visible. We continue to remind our residents and merchants to lock their vehicles and not to leave merchandise inside.
