Police release crime report

Public safety > Property crimes are still up in county

By Tris DeRoma

The Los Alamos Police Department has released its annual report, which is packed with some revealing statistics that make for a fairly interesting snapshot of Los Alamos in 2014.
The report is available online to the public through the department’s website, losalamosnm.us/police.
While property crime continues to rise, and continued to rise into the first quarter of 2014 overall, Los Alamos remains one of the safest communities in the nation, according to the police department’s latest statistics.
“The community continued to benefit from a relatively low crime rate, making Los Alamos County one of the safest communities in the nation,” said LAPD Chief Dino Sgambellone in the report. “While violent crime fell 37 percent to 28, total Part One crimes, property crime rose 17 percent to 179, largely due to vehicles and homes left unsecured. Our overall investigative clearance rate remained outstanding at 63 percent.”
The 32-page report is fairly comprehensive, providing a clear window into how the department is working to reduce drug abuse and domestic violence.
In 2014, the department organized a forum that helped make the public aware of just how extensive the abuse of illegal drugs and trafficking is in the community, especially among young people.
