The Bozeman Police Department released a report of the crime committed in the first quarter of 2022 and it's an exciting read. With many new people moving into the Bozeman area, locals have been wondering if crimes have been going up, but according to these statistics, there is hope.

The first number that sticks out is that calls have gone down compared to Quarter One of 2021. That's a good sign, if calls are going down, that means crime is going down. Another number that stuck out is how many traffic stops there were in the first three months of 2022. The number of stops is high, and I want to believe that it's high due to all the new people driving in snow for the first time and forgetting to use their blinker or drive the speed limit. I would love to know. 

The Bozeman Police Department has been making giant steps to be more reliable and open with the community when it comes to crime and how they operate. A couple of months ago, the Bozeman Police department announced they would be adding body cameras to all their officers starting this summer. 

This news is crucial to many folks who live here in the community. All of these statistics and news coming from the Bozeman Police Department are steps to reassure locals that they can count on our police officers.
