BETTER ALL THE TIME
Overall, Jeffersonville’s crime statistics have improved since 2011.
“Our [crime] numbers significantly dropped in 2012,” Sumler said. “In every category we have gone down.”
Moore agreed and said part of the reduction in crime is related to having more officers on the street.
“I would think you would see we’ve made significant improvements and you will see a reduction in crime in every category in 2012,” he said. “I attribute that to [putting] more officers on the street and [having] less behind a desk.”
He added that his administration’s involvement in neighborhood association meetings and increased neighborhood involvement have helped to improve Jeffersonville and reduce crime.
Sumler agreed and said he has also attended a number of the neighborhood meetings and rarely gets complaints about crime.
“The number one complaint we have is not crime, it’s speeders and people running stop signs,” he said.
