2010 ANNUAL REPORT

The Edmond Police Department is again pleased to present its Annual Report to our City and its Leaders. The Police Department, and as a result the City, enjoyed a very successful year in 2010 with regard to crime and safety. We continue our goal of delivering Trustworthy Service to the community by working to keep our services high and crime rates low. Below are some highlights:

CRIME RANKING The Edmond Police Department’s 2010 Report once again shows why Edmond, Oklahoma is one of the premier communities in the country. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program

Bob A. Ricks, CHIEF

released in 2010 – for calendar year 2009 – indicates that Edmond is the 14th Safest City in the United States for cities above 75,000 in population. This number was derived by comparing the Violent Crime Rates of other cities throughout the United States. In 2010 Edmond saw a decrease in Violent Crimes – from 95 to 74 – which is a significant (22.11%) decrease in our reported Violent Crimes. Property Crimes also decreased in 2010-from 1,790 to 1,684-which is a 5.92% decrease for Edmond’s reported Property Crimes. The overall decrease in total Part One Crimes for 2010 was 6.74%.

*Note: EPD preliminary UCR numbers are published in January and final FBI UCR numbers are not published until October. Final FBI UCR numbers may be higher or lower due to case status changes reported throughout the year.

BASED ON 2009 FBI UCR DATA Edmond’s National Crime Ranking for Cities above 75,000 14th for least Violent Crimes 53rd for least Property Crimes 40th for least Total Part One Crimes Edmond’s Crime Ranking in the State of Oklahoma for the 10th largest cities 1st for least Violent Crimes 2nd for least Property Crimes 1st for least Total Part One Crimes Calls for Service and Contacts with the Public For 2010 we had a total of 30,644 dispatched Calls for Service, 7,716 Officer Initiated Calls, and 33,397 Traffic Stops. Together these total 71,757 Officer responses or an average of 197 calls / contacts per day. It should be noted that our total Calls / Contacts were 169 per day in 2009. This is a 16.33 % increase over the last year. Strength The current authorized strength of the Department is 116 sworn and 30 non-sworn personnel. We have had no increase in authorized sworn positions for three years. At the end of 2010 we had (4) vacant Officer positions, but we do not intend to fill these and other vacancies during the year due to budgeting constraints. So while we are authorized 116 Officers, at the end of the year we had 112 Edmond Police Officers and 28 civilians in the Department. This year will go down as another successful year for the Edmond Police Department. This success is attributed to the professionalism of the men and women of the Edmond Police Department combined with the great support that we receive from our community.

EDMOND POLICE DEPARTMENT 2010 ANNUAL REPORT

CAPTAIN LARRY CAMPBELL

The Office of Budget and Professional Responsibility was created in June of 2009. The primary responsibilities of this office are to provide oversight for the Police Department budget, administrative investigations and internal audits. This office works directly under the supervision of the Police Chief and also oversees Planning and Research, Crime Analysis and Uniform Crime Reporting for the Department.

expenses for the various operations within the Department. The Edmond Police Department budget for FY 10/11, as adopted in June of 2010, is $18,133,241. The budget is separated into five budget categories; Personnel Services, Materials and Supplies, Other Services and Charges, Capital Outlay and Transfers. The Personnel Services portion of the Police Department FY 10/11 budget was $12,930,849, accounting for 71.31% of the total budget. Salaries and benefits for all Department employees, both uniformed and civilian are paid from this budget category. The Materials and Supplies portion of the Police Department FY 10/11 budget was $701,250, accounting for 3.87% of the total budget. Fuel for Department vehicles, ammunition, uniforms, body armor, technical investigation supplies and all other necessary materials is paid from this budget category. The Other Services and Charges portion of the Police Department FY 10/11 budget was $507,300, accounting for 2.80% of the total budget. Utilities for the five Police Department buildings is paid from this budget category as well as maintenance and repair of the buildings and equipment, consulting and professional services, contract services and other services and charges incurred during the operation of the Department. There were no Capital expenditures included in the Police Department FY 10/11 budget. Capital purchases were not budgeted this year due to concerns regarding declining revenues. Capital equipment is defined as those assets with a value of more than $5,000 and a life expectancy of at least two years.

BUDGET The funding for the Police Department is defined by the City of Edmond Public Safety Sales Tax Ordinance of 2000. The section of that ordinance which details revenue sources for Police Department operation is cited below. “Future funding for the Police Department shall, at a minimum, be set at an amount equal to the projected revenues generated by the tax established by this Ordinance ( 1/8 of 1%), plus the baseline funding equal to 36.8% of the General Fund revenues. General Fund revenues are those which currently come from the following sources: taxes, licenses and permits, fines and forfeitures, charges for services, interest and miscellaneous revenues. Expenditures will not be charged against the Public Safety tax revenues until said 36.8% General Fund revenues have first been used or encumbered.� The Edmond Police Department budget is divided between the Special Services Division, Patrol Division, Criminal Investigations Division and the Animal Welfare Unit. This was done to allow better tracking and forecasting of 3

CAPTAIN LARRY CAMPBELL

The Transfers portion of the Department FY 10/11 budget was $3,993,842, accounting for 22.02% of the total budget. Transfers are the allocations from other City departments which provide service to the Police Department. The largest portion of these allocations goes to Administrative Support and totaled $2,613,873. The Police Department portion of the cost for Dispatch, Human Resources, Finance, Facility Maintenance and other City departments is paid from this budget category. The Police Department Insurance Assessment is also paid out of the Transfers and this year it totaled $705,636. The other two areas of the Transfers cover the cost to maintain and replace the vehicle fleet. The vehicle maintenance portion of the Transfers was $310,500 and the Fleet Lease Assessment paid was $363,833. Although the Police Department’s budget is $18,133,241 the Department actually has direct control of a much smaller portion of that total budget. Police Personnel Services expenses and allocations total $16,924,691 and accounts for 93.33% of the total budget. The remaining $1,208,550 or 6.67% of the total budget is used to purchase the necessary supplies and services to operate the Department and provide law enforcement services to the residents of Edmond.

EJUSTICE EJustice, our records management system, received a major upgrade in 2009 which added several enhancements and capabilities. One major enhancement is the ability to verify addresses which is accomplished by connecting to an external service, such as the City of Edmond’s GIS database. The database is regularly updated with new addresses and aerial photographs of the City. The Crime Analysis Officer collaborated with the records management system vendor and the City of Edmond GIS Director to implement this new capability. Implementation is approximately 90% complete, and the City of Edmond GIS Department is assisting the Police Department by correcting several thousand address issues in our database. This upgrade will greatly enhance the ability to provide timely crime mapping and geographic crime analysis.


EDMOND POLICE DEPARTMENT 2010 ANNUAL REPORT

CAPTAIN LARRY CAMPBELL

CRIME ANALYSIS The Crime Analysis and Intelligence Section responded to internal requests for information as well as from external sources such as City Council Members, City departments and others. Officer safety and intelligence bulletins were distributed to assist Officers in performing their duties. The recent address verification upgrade to our records management system will increase the ability to release timely crime mapping information.

PLANNING AND RESEARCH The Planning and Research Section worked throughout the year researching new equipment for various Units and Divisions within the Department. Keeping up with the latest technology and equipment enables Officers to perform their job assignments in the safest and most efficient manner possible. Some of the major research projects for the Planning and Research section this year include: AFIX Tracker digital fingerprint identification system Accident Diagramming software for the Traffic Unit IA Pro internal affairs software New vehicle equipment for Department vehicles Benefits of diversifying the Police Department vehicle fleet to expand its capabilities One of the major accomplishments this year has been the work completed on the Department’s fleet of vehicles. With the changes in the current economy, we recognize and understand the importance of trying to save every dollar possible. Officers worked with Fleet Management, and requested bids to obtain the best possible pricing on equipment for the Department’s vehicles. The Police Department cut costs by taking advantage of special pricing for end of year model vehicles, allowing the purchase of several vehicles at a price much lower than the state bid price for the same vehicle.

2010 ANNUAL REPORT

The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is responsible for the follow-up investigation of criminal incidents reported to the Edmond Police Department (EPD). Investigations cover a wide range, including heinous crimes such as homicides, rapes, crimes against children, illegal drug activity and drug abuse, to property and white collar crimes. Investigators receive advanced training in the investigations of white-collar crime, cyber crime, sex crimes, crimes against children, auto theft and narcotics. CID also includes Technical Investigators (TI), they are responsible for advanced forensic crime scene investigations. TI Rockie Yardley and Officer Christy Meadows additionally operate our Digital Imaging Lab. Our Digital Imaging Lab processes, and enhances when necessary, all of the digital photographs taken of crimes scenes, evidence, victims and suspects. The lab also enhances surveillance videos taken by local businesses and homeowners victimized by crime. In 2010 a new resource was added to assist in the processing of crime scenes. Patrol Officers were trained in basic Technical Investigations to assist the TI staff and provide expanded coverage for TI responses. Cross training of our Officers is allowing the Edmond Police Department to do more, with less, during the current economic situation. CID reviewed more than 7,000 incidents and assigned 2,116 for investigation. The crimes ranged from homicide to petty thefts.

Narcotics Officers investigated 161 narcotics cases, made 146 arrests and served 46 narcotics search warrants. In 2010 a positive impact was made on the Edmond community with Operation Green Sweep. CID Narcotics Detectives developed this operation and invited other law enforcement agencies to join in the effort, sweeping two large apartment complexes in Edmond. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP), Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (OBNDD) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), along with other federal and state agencies all worked with the Edmond Police Department on these sweeps. Twenty-one arrests were made for narcotics and outstanding warrants, seven search warrants were served, Department of Human Services (DHS) child welfare referrals were made and many criminal suspects were contacted and identified. The Edmond Police Department received an overwhelmingly positive response from residents and management of the apartments involved in these crackdown operations, and many Edmond residents were able to feel safe once again in their own homes.

task forces involving the DEA and the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. Detective Mark Oak fills a part-time task force role in the FBI’s Innocent Images Task Force. The Innocent Images National Initiative (IINI), a component of the FBI's Cyber Crimes Program, is an intelligence driven, proactive, multi-agency investigative operation to combat the proliferation of child pornography/child sexual exploitation facilitated by an online computer.

Investigations into crimes against children and cyber crimes continued to be successful. One of our current Investigators completed specialized training in this area to assist with these types of investigations. Cyber fraud and white-collar investigations continued joint investigations with Federal agencies in the rampant area of debt/credit card fraud. CID has two Investigators assigned to Federal 7

(OCPD) and the Edmond Police Department (EPD). The training and equipment for computer forensic investigations are made available at no cost to the Edmond Police Department. Through the use of drug seizure funds, a new system was purchased called AFIX Tracker, which is a PC-based Automated Fingerprint Identification System. It has the capability within minutes to identify criminals from fingerprint and palm prints left behind at crime scenes. Statistically, a large portion of the crimes committed inside the city limits and in surrounding communities are being committed by local offenders. AFIX Tracker provides investigators the capability of building a database of arrestees from within our jurisdiction, allowing for a focused database of known local offenders. Maintaining a local database to be utilized in conjunction with the OSBI and the FBI’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, the Edmond Police Department is significantly improving the chances of searching a crime scene print and then matching a person to that print. The system is currently fully operational, and Technical Investigators are now trained in all AFIX Tracker uses. As a result, print information is constantly being entered into the data base increasing the AFIX Tracker’s value and full potential on a daily basis. The EPD Bomb Squad received a new bomb truck in 2010. The truck was purchased with a grant from Homeland Security. The vehicle is 25 feet long and has a purpose-built compartment in the rear with a ramp to carry Edmond’s Bomb 8

CID also initiated the new TEXT-A-TIP (625-8398) program. Text-A-Tip is a tip line allowing anyone to text information anonymously to the Edmond Police Department. By texting 625-8398, the text goes to a cell phone monitored by a CID supervisor. You will not be contacted unless you asked for an Officer to call you, and you leave contact information; otherwise, it is strictly a one-way text. The texts received in 2010 range from reports of loud parties to drug transactions in progress.

Text-A-Tip is being advertised in our schools, on posters, cards handed out by Police Officers and is on the City of Edmond website. Text-A-Tip (625-8398) is proving to be a successful tool, and the hope is, it will continue to grow and be widely used as knowledge of the number, and its use, spreads throughout the community. By using Text-A-Tip, everyone can partner with the Edmond Police Department to help fight crime in Edmond and help keep our community one of the safest cities in the nation.

However, 10 Officers are specifically assigned to the Traffic Unit, and their primary responsibilities are enforcement of traffic laws and collision investigations. Of the 10 Officers in the Traffic Unit, six are assigned to motorcycles and four are collision investigators. The Traffic Unit's goal is to protect the safety of the motoring public, ensure the smooth flow of traffic in the City, and encourage the safe operation of vehicles within the City. The Traffic Unit accomplishes these goals through proactive enforcement, by responding to, and investigating traffic collisions, and by developing solutions to various problem traffic areas within the City.

ALIVE AT 25 Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 cause of death for people in the 16-24 age group. In fact, 3 out of 4 deaths in this age group are caused by traffic crashes. The Edmond Police Department Traffic Division, in partnership with the Oklahoma Safety Council and the Edmond Municipal Court, teaches the “Alive at 25” driver education program. The course is delivered in one-four hour program, focusing on the behaviors and decision-making that young drivers and passengers display behind the wheel. Instructors hold candid conversations with students about what can happen if they practice risky behavior, or make other poor decisions in an automobile. Some of the areas of discussion include impaired driving, underage drinking, speeding, peer pressure, driver distractions, fatigue and the fear of being caught. Students are instructed on decision making, taking control and personal responsibility. These behaviors and implications are explored in-depth through a combination of discussions and interactive teaching tools. The course is a court-ordered directive to drivers in this category who have violated City of Edmond traffic ordinances.

SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER (SRO) AND OFFICER PRESENCE IN EDMOND PUBLIC SCHOOLS Currently, there are six Officers assigned to the Edmond Public Schools on a full time basis. Officers are assigned to each of the high schools, one to Boulevard Academy and two to the middle schools. School Resource Officers are provided additional education, training and certification. The newest addition to the SRO program is a single use K-9 named “Justice” assigned to Officer Dack Pearson. Justice is a non-aggressive dog, used to detect illegal narcotics, and has already had a positive impact on the schools. Justice came to the Police Department through a collaborative agreement between the EPD and the Edmond Public School system. The School Board decided to purchase a K-9 and pay for its upkeep, with the

Police Department providing the handler and training. Fortunately, an outstanding dog was provided by Edmond Animal Welfare, saving the School Board several thousand dollars. The dog was acquired the end of May, and training began the first of June. Justice was certified by the end of August, and he began his career the beginning of September. Shortly after Justice began working, the talk around the campuses was to “leave the drugs behind” because the school has a dog that will find the drugs. Officer Pearson and Justice are assigned to Boulevard Academy, but make regular visits to the other high schools and also visit the middle schools when requested.

In an effort to reduce underage drinking the Social Host Ordinance was passed in 2007. Edmond was the first city in the state to pass such an ordinance, and since that time, many other cities in the state have passed a similar law. In 2007 our Officers issued 71 citations for violations of the Social Host Ordinance. In 2008 we issued 42 citations, and in 2009 our Officers issued 39 Social Host citations. In 2010 there were 10 Social Host citations. These numbers reflect our Officers’ enforcement efforts are working against underage drinking, and we will continue to aggressively enforce the Social Host Ordinance in 2011. We know continued education and enforcement of this ordinance will reduce underage drinking in our City, and promote a safer environment for our younger drivers.

Two Patrol Officers retired in 2010. One will retire in January of 2011. Ten Recruit Officers were hired in July 2009 training the remainder of the year. Nine of these Officers completed training in March of 2010 and were assigned to Patrol shifts. The addition of these Officers increased our visibility and allowed Officers to conduct more proactive patrols. By adding these Officers we were able to fill two Motorcycle Officer positions that were vacated in 2009. The filling of these two positions increased our traffic enforcement efforts. In 2010 we saw a significant increase in Traffic stops and DUI arrests from 2009.

EDMOND POLICE DEPARTMENT 2010 ANNUAL REPORT

CAPTAIN NICKI SMITH

SPECIAL SERVICES DIVISION The Edmond Police Special Services Division provides the majority of support services for the balance of the Police Department, including Property and Evidence Control, Jail Administration, Records Management and Training. The Special Services Division also provides services to the public such as Crime Prevention/Community Services and Animal Welfare. A significant achievement of the Training Unit during 2010 was the hosting of more than 700 accredited hours of training, benefitting both EPD employees and other law enforcement agencies. It has been a goal of the Training Unit to become a regional state location for law enforcement training. The accomplishments of 2010 bring us much closer to achieving that goal. Planning for 2011 has taken place, and more regional training opportunities are being scheduled. 2010 marked the first year of the implementation of quarterly audits of the Property Room where evidence and property are stored. We are pleased with the outcomes regarding the accountability of the items, but the audit again revealed the serious lack of space issues for storing all the property. While the property clerks are focusing a great deal of time working to reduce the amount of property by obtaining legal permissions to dispose of items no longer needed, 2010 showed an increase from 2009 of 1,272 more property items being submitted. Therefore, a project which began in 2010, and is ongoing, is a reorganization of the property storage area. 21

In an attempt to save money, while addressing an area where the Division was lacking, there was some restructuring of positions within Special Services. With the retirement of the civilian Supervisor in charge of Records and Property, that position was downgraded from a Supervisor, to an Administrative Specialist to provide administrative support. The addition of the Administrative Specialist has proven very useful in more ways than originally expected. In addition to performing administrative duties, the Administrative Specialist is also assisting in the reorganization of the Property Room. The Special Services Lieutenant is now responsible for overseeing the functions of Records, Property and Jail Administration.

The Animal Welfare Unit experienced personnel challenges during the year. The Unit supervisor resigned, and due to budget constraints, filling the position was not feasible. Through a series of resignations and employee transfers, a vacancy also now exists in the Animal Welfare Officer rank. This position will remain vacant until the fiscal outlook improves. In an effort to continue to deliver high quality service, and to provide more hours open to the

22

the public, a change in shelter hours of operation has been implemented including Sunday hours. Despite the challenges of the year, there was an increase of 122 more pet adoptions in 2010 than in 2009. In 2011, we hope to see that number continue to rise.
