Crime Report June 8 – June 24, 2012

Captain’s Message:

This month (June 2012), the Police Department is experiencing an unprecedented loss of experience as nine (9) Captains/Commanders take their retirement.  This is not counting the 10-12 Lieutenants who have/are retiring as well.  Many have worked in command positions at Ingleside and as one knows—once you are a part of the Ingleside family—you never really leave.  Former Ingleside Captain Paul Chignell says goodbye after 42 years of public service.  Former Ingleside Sergeant AND then Lieutenant Keith Sanford (now a Captain) leaves with 29 years.  And the list continues.  Overall, over 300 YEARS of institutional knowledge left the Department this month.  While we have promoted our best and brightest to take over those vacancies, one cannot duplicate the experience that they all had.  The good news—these new promotees are dedicated, passionate and professional.
New Personnel—Please join me in welcoming 5 new Sergeants to Ingleside.  We are fortunate to now have Sergeants Anthony Pedroza and Feliks Gasanyan, and Jason Sawyer to our investigative unit.  Sergeants Randy Ly and Yulanda Williams have joined us on the patrol side.
Our last report regarding our crime statistics were very encouraging as it showed Ingleside crime was down and arrests were up.  This is a trend I work very hard to achieve and I hope it is sustainable.

The following are Glen Park crimes from the Ingleside Station newsletter
