Columbus Dispatch: Whitehall police chief says efforts to reduce crime are working

Violent and other crimes are down in Whitehall since 2016, proof that efforts to make Whitehall safer are working, says Police Chief Mike Crispen.

Whitehall Police Chief Mike Crispen was hired two years ago for a reason: The city needed to lower its crime rate.

So far, that has happened.

Through September, violent crime — defined as murder, negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault — has dropped 36 percent compared to 2016 rates, according to police department data. Burglaries have fallen 43 percent, down from 240 in 2016 to 137 in 2018.

Dispatched calls also are down 14 percent, suggesting a general decline in crime.
