Hello Coordinators,

Well it’s been a while since we communicated. This indicates to me that all is well for the most part in Placitas?

I have ran statistics for the Placitas area for this year and we seem to be doing great, see below:

Burglaries Down 22%
Attempted Burglaries Down 66%
Battery Down 33%
Assaults none reported to date
Fraud Down 44%
Embezzlement None reported to date
False alarms Up 38%

We had a total of 378 incidents reported. Of those, 213 were FALSE ALARMS and 38 were Animal Control calls. This leaves us with 127 incidents of mostly petty crimes or reports and very few felony crimes.

I want to thank the citizens of Placitas for the fantastic job. Together we will continue to make our communities safe!

On other note, the U.S. Census Bureau will be in Placitas and Algodones until October 16, 2010. All Census workers should have Official Identification. We encourage everyone to participate, as it will help our communities in the years to come!!!

Remember if you see or hear something suspicious, call the Sheriff’s Office immediately! Sheriff’s non-emergency # 867-4581 ext 2. For emergencies call 911.

Please pass this information on to your Neighborhood Associations!
