Brainerd Serious Crime Drops Again

Brainerd Police Chief John Bolduc reported at this week's city council meeting that serious crime has dropped for the second year in a row. Bolduc said he believes there are a couple of good reasons for the drops. Cheif Bolduc said one program - the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program, involves landlords and tenants in watching for serious crime and doing something about it has had definite positive results. Bolduc said the Nieghborhood Watch program has also been very successful. And new laws restricting access to meth ingredients has brought about the near-disappearance of meth labs. Bolduc said good law enforcement has been an important element as well as a public willing to help. But he warns that all the positive gains from the last couple of years could be erased overnight if a new gang or criminal enterprise moved into the area.
