This year has been very tough for the Bend community and the police force. Bend Police have seen a record number of five homicide cases and an increase in other violent crime. Lt. Ben Gregory was on KBND's "Your Town" this morning and talks about how tough it is to be the first one on the scene of a violent crime. "We get a call; shots fired. The officer arrives on scene and he or she has to make a decision whether or not it's safe to enter a residence, makes a decision to do so. If those shots are fired doesn't know what they might see when they go inside. It's always been very interesting to me in the 20 years I’ve been doing this, we can take this same officer; see this trauma see all of the destruction, have them clear in a short period of time, and then send them to a parking complaint.” Bend Police Chaplain Jim Crowley says the community has also had a very high number of suicides this year.
