Tracking Crime Trends for Bend Police


Bend Police are learning new ways of tracking crime and possibly even stop it before it occurs at times.

 

They have hired Nancy Watson, a crimes analyst from Los Angeles to research and track trends.

 

She's already mapped graffiti crimes in Bend - helping to track down a suspect responsible for hundreds of taggings. "I see a lot of similarities; the same symbols or words, or time, location, anything. Then I make note of it and continue to track it and speak with patrol or detectives, whoever's involved and try an get as much information as possible."

 

While keeping details at a minimum, Lt. Chris Carney says they are working on a big case now; hoping to catch the "serial" bank robber who's gotten away with four hold-ups in the past year.
