And they make arrests. Imagine that, police doing policing,
In response to an increase of vehicle and residential burglaries, the Monterey Police Department has created the Burglary and Theft Team and made 17 arrests in the past two months in connection to those crimes.
According to Hober, officers on the Burglary and Theft Team volunteer to work overtime on their days off.
“They’ll just go out and proactively try to develop information and find people who might be committing these property crimes,” he said. “A majority of those 17 arrests came from officers on the (Burglary and Theft Team) going out.”
