Crimes have continued to decrease in Sachse and Police Chief Bryan Sylvester credits the community for making the city safer.
“My belief is that our partnerships with the community play a big role in helping us be more aware and responsive to suspicious people and vehicles,” he said.
There were 713 crimes in Sachse last year, a 22 percent decrease from 909 in 2017.
Sylvester categorizes all crimes as either Part 1 or Part 2. Part 1 crimes include aggravated assault (in which a weapon is used), simple assault, sexual assault, robbery, residential burglary, building burglary, vehicle burglary, auto theft and theft. Part 2 crimes include criminal mischief, forgery/fraud, disorderly conduct, public intoxication, drug possession/paraphernalia and DWI.
