Semi-annual crime statistics for the Pensacola Police Department show a 6.3 percent decrease in crime within city limits for the same time period last year.
“I am pleased with these results,” said Pensacola Police Chief David Alexander III. “I believe that transparency, communication, and respect make these results possible. Working together promotes understanding and understanding builds trust. This is an example of what 21st Century community policing looks like: Citizens working with law enforcement agencies to make their community a safe place to live.”
“When you contrast these statistics to what we used to know in this city, it’s an extraordinary testament to the consistency of the progress that the Pensacola Police Department has made,” Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward said. “I am extremely proud of the comprehensive efforts between the PPD and our community partners to continue to drive crime downward.”
The figures have been submitted to and approved by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
