FDL Police West Division Officers Working On Initiatives

Officers with the Fond du Lac Police Department’s West Division are getting to know businesses and residents through a couple of different initiatives. Lieutenant Corby Gross says they recently wrapped up a burglary initiative. He says officers on their night shift talked with business owners about how to make improvements to prevent crimes of opportunity. He says some of those ideas involved moving dumpsters, trimming trees and adding lighting. He says most business owners were very receptive to the suggestions. Gross says there are about 700 businesses in the West District. He feels the initiative was a success. Gross says another project involves meeting with residents about blighted properties.
