Fighting Crime

CannonCopLt. Scott Brown, Sector Commander for the Kent County Sheriff Department, updated the Cannon Township Board on Monday, August 24, on his officers efforts to reduce crime in the township. The Board voted to pay for extra patrols this summer for the hours between midnight and 4 a.m. Township Supervisor, Pete MacGregor, said the seasonal extra patrols were to stop “opportunistic” crimes such as stealing CDs from cars and beer from garages. Brown said 92-percent of the incidents officers investigated were initiated themselves rather than from people calling in. “Basically, after midnight, you have officers and people doing other things.”
