More ‘Pro-Act’-ivitySeptember 18th, 2007 by josh farley
The Bremerton Police Department’s “pro act” team of officers conducted another criminal emphasis in the Westpark housing area Monday evening, according to a press release I received today.
Seven officers, from patrol and the detectives division, scoured Westpark for suspicious activity. The area was chosen due to “frequent 911 calls for assistance,” the release said.
The effort saw 9 police reports written, including six arrests for criminal traffic
violations such as driving with a suspended license, 2 arrest warrant arrests and 2 additional arrests. In one case, a man that had allegedly pawned 16 stolen DVD movies from Blockbuster on Kitsap Way was spotted by officers and arrested.
Since its inception earlier this year, the pro act team has conducted criminal emphases in high-crime areas, set up bait cars to lure thieves, and held traffic emphases on streets around the city.
