The city of Oregon has seen a dramatic drop in crime over
the past decade.
The Oregon Police department says there were 3,879 crimes
reported in 2003. That number dropped to 2,437 in 2013. That's a drop of more
than 35 percent.
Oregon Police Chief Mike Navarre credits the work of his
officers for the drop.
"The crime in Oregon is very manageable. The
burglaries that do occur, our directives do a great job following up on them
and in almost all cases are able to determine who is responsible," said
Oregon has not seen a shooting or stabbing in
the past two years.
Navarre says new technology has also played a
role in solving the city's many burglary and credit card fraud cases. He also
has some advice for citizens to avoid becoming a victim of this type of crime.
"Just use common sense and it will go a long
way toward keeping those crimes down. You will never eliminate them but you can
minimize them," said Navarre.
