Sacramento PD releases annual report; crime down

By Kim Minugh

The Sacramento Police Department has released its 2009 Annual Report, detailing a year's worth of efforts and crime trends in the city.

Among the topics covered:

- A continued decrease in crime, with 4,167 violent crimes reported in 2009 compared to 4,660 the year prior.

- What kind of calls for service the department receives, the most common being disturbance calls.

- Where the traffic hot spots are (Hint: Avoid the intersection of Cosumnes River Boulevard and Bruceville Road - it tallied the most traffic collisions of all the city's intersections).

- Trends in narcotics and gangs enforcement (It was a big year for drug seizures - nearly double the amount seized in 2008).

- How the department dealt with a $16 million budget cut in the 2008-09 fiscal year and still avoided layoffs.
