Missouri City Streets Safest In 5 Years
Press Release
Friday, July 13, 2018

Innovative strategies, community partnerships and prevention programs have helped the Missouri City Police Department reduce crime to record lows citywide in the past five years, Chief Mike Berezin told City Councilmembers in a detailed presentation at their July 2 Regular Meeting.

Chief Berezin told Council that one of the department’s new programs—DDACTS (Data-Driven Approach to Crime and Traffic Safety) has been essential to achieving crime reduction goals. The initiative is aimed at reducing the incidence of crime, crashes and traffic violations by drawing on the deterrent of highly visible traffic enforcement and the knowledge that crime often involves the use of motor vehicles. “DDACTS relies on prompt collection and analysis of data to provide actionable reports that inform tactical and strategic decisions and integrates location-based crime and traffic data to establish efficient methods for deploying law enforcement and other resources,” Berezin said.  

The department’s public safety initiatives were so effective that many of the worst felonies, classified as Part 1 crimes, dropped double digits over the past five years.
