1 FRESNO POLICE DEPARTMENT 2005 ANNUAL REPORT 2323 Mariposa Mall Fresno, California

2 MAYOR S MESSAGEESSAGE I am extremely proud to say that the City of Fresno is home to the finest Police Department in the Nation. The Fresno Police Department has seen great successes during this past year. On July 30, 2005, the department became the largest municipality in California to receive national accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). This designation recognizes the Fresno Police Department s dedication to service, professionalism, and reputation on a national scale. Our police department has increased its vigilance in removing criminals from the streets through the Gang Impact Operation that brought a halt to gang-related homicides in the last quarter of the year. In addition, the department s continued commitment to traffic safety has resulted in fewer accidents and safer streets within the City of Fresno. The Fresno Police Department and the City of Fresno still have a long and difficult road ahead to make our city safer for its citizens. With unrelenting dedication and determination, our city will continue to become a safer place to live. I know that the Fresno Police Department will never waiver in its determination and service to the community. Alan Autry Mayor 2

3 CHIEF S MESSAGEESSAGE The Fresno Police Department continues to make significant strides towards crime control, traffic safety, reducing emergency response times, and enhancing the profession of law enforcement. Although 2005 saw an increase in violent crime as compared to 2004, this is largely attributed to the rise in aggravated assaults, while overall crime decreased for the fourth consecutive year. In the traffic safety arena, Fresno continues to see steady decreases in overall traffic collisions which gained the police department state and national recognition for its efforts. In 2005 the department was recognized as having the number one traffic safety program in the state and nationally for departments of its size, and received a national award for having the number one impaired driving program in combating drunk driving. Although this recognition is appreciated, the real reward comes from knowing that since 2002, thirty-eight (38) fewer families have had to bury a loved as a result of a traffic collision in our city. During the past year the department also made considerable progress in reducing response times to life threatening calls for service. In 2003 the average time for an officer to respond to a life threatening call- from the time the complaint taker received the call until an officer arrived on scene- was over nine minutes. This was unacceptable. I am pleased to say that by the end of 2005 response times consistently remained at seven minutes or less. One of the most significant accomplishments in 2005 was our department receiving national accreditation status from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The Fresno Police Department is now among the elite, as fewer than 4% of law enforcement agencies nationwide have been accredited through CALEA. However, accreditation is more than a status. It is a commitment to our community that we will do all that we can to maintain the trust of our citizens as we pursue excellence in policing. Without the dedication and hard work of the men and women of the Fresno Police Department, the accomplishments contained in this annual report would not have been possible. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your police chief as we collectively seek to improve the quality of life for Fresno residents. Jerry Dyer Chief of Police 3

12 34-Year Low in Crime The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program was conceived in 1929 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet a need for reliable, uniform crime statistics for the nation. In 1930, the FBI was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving those statistics. Fresno s crime statistics from the FBI Crime Index demonstrate that the proactive, community-oriented strategies undertaken by the Fresno Police Department continue to impact the crime rate and increase the public s sense of security. The Fresno Police Department continues to demonstrate excellence in its efforts to increase the quality of life for Fresno s citizens. In 2005 Fresno continued its overall reduction in crime city-wide.

This extensive operation resulted in a significant decrease in gang-related violence, shootings, and homicides. After the first two weeks of the Gang Impact Operation, the number of additional gang-related homicides dropped to zero and remained at that number for the rest of The results of this 3-month operation are a dramatic illustration of proactive, targeted policing producing an immediate improvement in public safety, reduction of fear and overall quality of life.

14 Person Crimes Forcible Rape Year Forcible Rapes % Increase/ Decrease -1.5% -9.4% -8% 0% 25% -21% 3.8% 10.4% -17.7% After a rise in 2004 forcible rapes dropped to their lowest levels in 10 years during Much of this drop is undoubtedly due to improvements in investigative capabilities which makes identification and conviction more likely. This in turn enables stricter sentencing and decreases the number of rapists at large. The department s capabilities increased in October 2005 when the Sexual Assault Unit received an additional detective position through a $1.2 million grant to investigate cold sexual assault crimes, emphasizing identification, apprehension, and prosecution of violent offenders through improved DNA analysis In June 2005 officers arrested a suspect for a rape that occurred in April 2001, after DNA evidence identified him as the suspect. The suspect had sexually assaulted the victim while armed with a gun. Since he wore a mask during the assault the victim could not identify him during the preliminary investigation. Investigators submitted case evidence to the California Department of Justice Crime Lab for analysis and entered a DNA profile into the cold hit DNA database. In April 2005, the DNA profile specimen collected from the investigation was matched in a data bank to the DNA profile of a known felon. He is also a registered sex offender. The Sexual Assault Unit monitors over 1,400 sexual predators within Fresno s city limits. 14

As the City grows, so does the potential for crime. In the 1990 s Fresno ranked #1 for car theft in the nation. Realizing that something had to be done to halt the rise in crime in all categories, increasing police department resources became Fresno's top priority. 10,000 9,000 8,000 7,000 6,000 5,000 4,000 3,000 2,000 1,000 Seeking to maximize % % % % 333% % available resources to combat the growing trend in vehicle thefts, the Fresno Police Department and the California Highway Patrol joined together to form Fresno HEAT (Help Eliminate Auto Theft) which became operational on April 1, HEAT is a multi-agency task force dedicated to effectively enforce vehicle theft laws and to investigate other criminal activity related to vehicle thefts. In 2005 the Unit focused on five categories: occupied stolen vehicles, felony arrests, vehicle recoveries, gun recoveries, and parole/probation searches. Since automobile theft has a correlation to methamphetamine production (6 of the top ten auto theft cities in 2003 are on the 99/I-5 corridor, the primary meth trafficking area of the U.S.), focusing on these categories enabled HEAT to impact the activities of individuals who were involved in multiple crimes. A bi-product of this focus has been the arrest of a large number of identity thieves. HEAT, combined with Traffic Bureau operations, the Parolee Apprehension Team, District Crime Suppression Teams, the Fresno County Jail expansion and juvenile Boot Camp, has dramatically impacted automobile theft in Fresno HEAT Goals Occupied Stolen Felony Arrests Vehicle Recovered Guns Recovered Parole/ Probation Searches Projected Actual Since 1996, auto theft in Fresno has dropped 42.4%. In 2003 Fresno dropped to #6 in auto thefts and in 2004 Fresno dropped to #9. 16

19 Use of Force Despite officers preferred use of verbal commands, and attempts to negotiate peaceful solutions when involved in adversarial situations, there are times when physical force is necessary to make an arrest, prevent an escape, overcome resistance, or defend against injury to officers or citizens. Officers use force as a last resort, with the vast majority of confrontations resolved with very little, if any, force applied. On rare occasions, deadly force must be used; however, the public is often unaware of the vast majority of potentially deadly confrontations that are peacefully resolved without resorting to deadly force. Until recently, the Department had no method to determine the number of times officers used non-lethal means to resolve potentially lethal situations, losing critical information needed to illustrate this important fact. Effective March 31, 2003, the Professional Standards Unit began reviewing police reports and other force data for comparative analysis and composite reporting. This information is used to determine effectiveness and necessity of the force used, reliability of equipment, training needs, policy modifications, etc. The Department defines reportable force as any force when: Officers (including canines) use force and a person is injured; or, Officers strike a person with a body part (i.e., fist, foot, elbow, etc.) or any object, or, Officers use (not merely display) a department issued weapon (i.e., electronic immobilizing device, less-lethal impact projectile, chemical agents, baton, firearm, etc.). Fresno police officers applied force in 637 incidents while responding to 381,304 calls for service (CFS). This equates to officers applying force in less than one-fifth of one percent of all CFS for this reporting period. A review of the 637 reportable force incidents for 2005 revealed the following results: - Officers responded to 381,304 field calls, and resorted to force 637 times officers were assaulted: 420 by the suspect s hands, Calls For Service (CFS) vs. Reportable Response Resistance (Force) Incidents 400, ,000 0 Total FORCE USED 637 CALLS FOR SERVICE 381, % of Calls for Service resulted in the application of reportable force. Some incidents require multiple applications of force to take a suspect into custody or stop an unlawful attack. Use of Force Categories Electronic Immobilization Device 35.2% Body Strike 33.6% K % Projected Impact Weapon 5.4% Baton 2.9% Object Strike 1.6% Firearm 1.2% Vehicle 0.1% fist, or feet; five by firearm; eight by a knife; and thirty-six by other dangerous weapons. - Officers resorted to force as a result of a suspect refusing to obey lawful commands (54.8%), followed by the suspect assaulting an officer (20.4%). - Tasers were the most common type of force used on suspects (35.2%), followed by Body Strikes (33.6%), and K9 applications (13.4%) % of those arrested were definitely under the influence of alcohol or drugs. - In the remaining 38.4%, the cause for the suspect s noncompliance with verbal commands is unknown. 19
