Arrest Numbers Up for West Hartford Police, Who Say Crime is “Cyclical”
West Hartford police have been busy according to the Courant. Since June 2014, they’ve arrested 21 burglars, many responsible for more than one property crime. Police Chief Tracy Groves credits a hard-working police force but says “the biggest component of this is the residents of West Hartford keeping an eye out,” which covers everything from walking in on crimes in progress to installing home security systems.
He also warns, however, that “crime is cyclical” — is it possible for New England homeowners to get out of the circle?
