Decatur crime: getting to know your zone

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt August 28, 2013

A while back I had a lengthy interview with Sgt. Jennifer Ross, who handles communications for the Decatur Police Department.

During our conversation, I asked how the city maps its police zones.

Ross told me the city has four distinct zones: northeast, northwest, southeast and southwest.

I’ve requested more specific data concerning crime reports in each of the four zones. Sgt. Ross said she’s working on gathering that data for me, but it isn’t quite as simple as the TV shows would lead you to believe.

In the meantime, I’m going to provide the zone maps she gave me. The north and south of the city are divided by the railroad tracks, FYI.
