Crime Down in 2009

According to a message from Police Chief Thomalla to the city council, 2009 was a year of improvement in the fight against crime in Maplewood. He wrote:
Preliminary numbers indicate reported crime was down significantly in 2009 after it had spiked in many areas in 2008. In 2009 we saw a slight increase in Robberies and Theft from vehicles, but all other of the major crimes dropped. There was a 21% reduction in Assaults, a 24% reduction in Burglaries, An 18% reduction in Thefts, a 12% reduction in Auto Thefts and 9% reduction in Damage to Property.
