Parsons Police Chief Robert Spinks presented his annual report to city commissioners Monday night. Reflecting data from the last four years, looking at violent crimes and theft. Cheif Spinks said they had vast improvement in the number of traffic accidents, where they had close to 100 less crashes last year.
Officers are also taking the “right approach” to enforcing the rules of the road by officers embracing their policy of using the “lowest level of enforcement to gain the highest level of voluntary compliance”. They actually give more than two warnings for every one traffic ticket.
Chief Spinks pointed out the need for stronger drug enforcement, so he and the county attorney will be presenting to the city commission about a task force to strengthen drug enforcement.
