After 5-year drop, Suisun City sees crime rates rise

SUISUN CITY — A five-year drop in major crimes in Suisun City ended last year with the Suisun City Police Department reporting that major crimes rose by 8 percent between November 2012 and November 2013, according to figures released by the department.

Fairfield has seen a similar rise in crime with its own major crimes rising by 7.2 percent during the same time, according to statistics on the Fairfield Police Department’s website.

While crimes of violence against people stayed stable overall in Suisun City, Police Chief Ed Dadisho said he is concerned about the rise in property crimes by 12 percent, with motor vehicle thefts leading the way.

Suisun City saw only one homicide last year as opposed two that occurred in 2012, while the number of rapes dropped from five reported in 2012 to three in 2013. Aggravated assault dropped 19 percent in 2013 and simple assault dropped 3 percent, according to the report.

Robberies more than doubled from 17 committed in 2012 to 35 committed in 2013, which has Suisun police concerned since the target – money, jewelry and possessions – is property.

Motor vehicle thefts led the rise in property crimes with 46 more car thefts occurring in 2013 than in 2012, a rise of 63 percent.

The most numerous crime, theft, rose by 2 percent with 380 thefts reported during 2013. Burglaries rose by 13 percent with 133 reported in 2013, according to Suisun police.

Dadisho reported to the council in February 2013 that crime dropped 17 percent in 2012 and by 32 percent since 2007. He said that a key component of the continuing decline was proactive enforcement by the department’s police officers and a strong partnership with the community.

    When you let inmates out to serve their sentence on the street, you just about have to expect something like this to happen. Good thing the 9th Circuit just ruled that you can have a concealed firearm without having to beg permission of the police chief or sheriff. Git R Done!

    Isn't their revolving door through the county utterly ridiculous? Then, after double digit arrest, when they finally send the person to prison, they release them early, under "Supervised Release."Do you know how many people on "Supervised Release show up on the booking log?It's a joke. This county is a friggen joke.Wait, make that the state.The entire state is a joke.

    That 9th District Court decision is a great start, but until San Diego county appeals it which they will, not handing out permits yet, and it goes before the Supremes, which it will, and will rule the same way, because the 2nd Amendment SAYS SO. Anyway once us LAW ABIDING citizens as the 9th District termed it, and we can go down at OUR discretion, not the current powers that be, getting our concealed weapons permit, this crime problem will be solved, the old fashion WILD WEST way>>>>>BANG. I'll be getting mine as soon as the Supremes clear the way. We will then be our OWN law enforcement, since both PD's in Fairfield & Suisun are too overwhelmed. Not sure, but I think it is NOW legal to carry one as long as it is not concealed, the old fashioned Wild West way, in a, CAN BE SEEN holster, but I may be mistaken.

    I suppose the solution is more welfare, illegal aliens and cops, each cancelling the other out with no progress being made. I subscribe to the ''Broken Windows'' theory of policing and not Sewer Soon City's 'San Francisco Alternative (do nothing) Policing'' theory of great coffee and donuts are to be found at the station or precicnt house.

    Is this the place where we pretty much blame anything for the rise in crime? Cuz I blame the people who want marijuana dispensaries, and anyone who doesn't go to church at least three times a week. Otherwise, I figured that crime was increasing when the Suisun PD no longer posted their "Police Logs". I also blame turtles, and some species of duck.
