Positive Police Department Statistics Reported Jo Petteruti

The Fallon City Council received positive news from Police Chief Kristopher Alexander during its last meeting on December 20. The chief presented the police department’s monthly report for November where the total number of calls for service and incidents reports dropped from 841 in October to 642. The crime summary showed domestic battery, battery assaults, and larceny crimes all down from October with total crimes on a downward trend from 22 in July to 11 in November.

A total of 37 arrests for felonies, gross misdemeanors, misdemeanors, DUIs, juvenile crimes, CPCs, and domestic violence crimes were made in November. Traffic accidents and moving violations were both down in November as compared to October. 

One citizen survey was received last month which rated their interaction with Fallon Police as “very satisfied,” praising Officer Itskin and Dispatcher Schwartz by saying, “You should be very proud of these two employees. Both were very professional and helpful.”

As part of their public relations support, the chief reported that Fallon Police provided traffic control for dying the fountain on Maine Street and provided an escort for an Oasis Academy long-distance runner who was going to state, a career day presentation at Oasis Academy, a suicide prevention presentation at Churchill County Middle School, a winter driving safety class and traffic briefing both held at NAS Fallon.

In another action, the City Council approved a drinking establishment liquor license requested by Gary Sinclair for Analee’s Cafe located at 66 West Center Street. Police Chief Alexander, Deputy City Clerk Elsie Lee, City Engineer Derek Zimney, and City Attorney Michael Mackedon also recommended approval of the license request.

Regular City Council meetings are held every first and third Tuesday of the month at 9 a.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers located at 55 W. Williams Avenue. Meeting information can be found on the City’s website, https://www.fallonnevada.gov/city-council-meeting-and-agendas/#city-meetings
