Lt.
Johnson is in charge of the patrol division of the Greenfield Police
Department. While
reviewing
activity logs and police reports, he detects an increase in residential burglaries
during
the previous month. The burglaries are being reported on the afternoon shift
when
residents
return home from work. Most of burglaries are occurring in one neighborhood.
Lt.
Johnson calls the afternoon patrol supervisor to inquire about the burglaries.
The
supervisor
tells him he is aware of the problem and has been assigning officers to patrol
the
neighborhood. The supervisor notes that the burglaries are all on Thursdays and
Fridays,
but adds, “It’s like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.”
Lt.
Johnson contacts the investigations supervisor and learns that he is also aware
of the
increase
in burglaries. The supervisor tells Johnson that they have fingerprints from
several
of the burglaries, but no suspects. He speculates it might be kids because most
of
the
losses are cigarettes, liquor and small amounts of cash.
When
Lt. Johnson talks to the day patrol supervisor, he learns that the supervisor
isn’t
aware
of an increase in burglaries because none have been reported during his shift.
The
supervisor
says they have been dealing with loitering and disorderly conduct problems at
the
shopping center. He says high school kids are hanging around the video arcade
during
the
day, and he plans to meet with the high school principal to figure out why
these kids
aren’t
in school.
Lt.
Johnson realizes that patrolling and reactive investigations usually have a
minimal
effect
on preventing burglaries. He decides on a new approach.
