Crime in Ortonville: Lately I ...


Crime in Ortonville:

Lately I have started to notice a pattern in the crime section of The Citizen. Looking back at my last five papers, there was 27 reported "crime" cases. Of those 27, 3 included a driving arrest, 2 were reported issues from locally businesses, and 15 were cases reported from within a certain mobile home community. While this is still a very small fraction of the population it does not take long to see where a real issue is. If more than half of our police calls are being sent to a certain population of the community I may feel more encouraged to vote for some "pay as you use" system. It was brought up before of charging for the police call in certain habitual or extreme cases such as DUI arrests. In my reading only 2 cases were DUI related. Where should we actually be focusing on? Remember that there are the respected home owners in that community. Please speak up if you are tired of the few that chose to abuse the system. In many communities a police liaison is a suggested idea for the school district, can we have a police liaison for a certain area of the community? Please suggest your ideas. After all WE the citizens will have to be the ones to correct this systemic problem.
