The Maumee Police Department looked back at the year 2013 at
a City Council meeting Monday night.
Chief James MacDonald said the department had some major
accomplishments in the previous year. A schools resource officer was added to
Maumee Middle School, and there were zero traffic fatalities in the city of
Response times did increase from the previous year, though.
Five officers retired in 2013, but the department was able
to hire four new cops.
MacDonald also looked to the future in his presentation
Monday night, saying the department will focus on traffic enforcement in 2014.
"We're looking at new patrol strategy called,
'place-based policing.' We're going to focus a little more on the corridors
that attach to Toledo and kind of target enforcement in those areas," said MacDonald.
MacDonald also told council that his police force had gained
a better connection with the public, helping officers and detective solve many
crimes in 2013.
