City Adds New Police Patrols to High Crime Areas
Mayor James J. Fiorentini today announced that the City has added additional police patrols to the Mount Washington and lower Acre areas of the City.
The additional police patrols were paid for by a re-allocation of block grant funding. Mayor Fiorentini has ordered the $25,000 in block grant money be used for additional police patrols in low income areas.
The Police Department used its computerized crime analysis program called “Compstat” to identify the exact areas and streets which had the highest incidences of reported crime. Police Chief Alan Denaro then directed the additional patrols to be in those areas. Allocating scarce resources identified through computerized crimes reports is called “hot-spot policing” which is the newest innovation in the Haverhill Police Department.
