    1736 calls for service? How can that be, the city is telling us crime is down?

    But why is the city manager Duran not releasing the data?
    “Interim city manager ron bernal” ?

    I hope if there is a change coming up , the position
    Of the city manger is NOT given to ron bernal,
    There has to be a serious job posting , ron bernal
    Is NOT the right person for the job.
    We need to clean house first.

    • Bob Cobb says:

      There could be a number of reasons for a high volume of calls for service, and a decrease in crime. One is, a call for services doesn’t have to be related to a crime at all. It could be a welfare check. Another reason is, that call for service prevented a crime. Those are just two of a number of reasons.
