Mayor Says Crime Stat Review Still Not Done

Mayor Says Crime Stat Review Still Not Done

Posted: Updated:

Mobile Mayor Sam Jones says an investigation into the truth of the city’s crime stats still isn’t finished.  Months ago News 5 reported some burglaries were being improperly listed as criminal mischief complaints.  Outgoing Mobile Police Chief Micheal T. Williams was not at today’s city council meeting.  Mobile Mayor Sam Jones said he talked to police about an update three weeks ago.

“They said they still had some people to talk to, not in house, but people who may have been victims they have to talk to all of them too,” says Jones.  The outgoing mayor says he’s not sure how many cases the department is reviewing.  Jones says they have to interview victims to confirm that police reports reflect what really happened in each incident.
