Yesterday at the Amarillo city commission meeting some pleasant statistics were given.

APD Chief Taylor told the meeting there has been some victories in the fight against crime in Amarillo.  A decrease in larceny theft of 9.5% and an overall drop in more serious crimes of 5%.

There was a 18.3% increase in robberies.

Increased patrols across the city have been credited with creating the drop.

Way to go APD!
