Pella Sees Reduction in Crime, Accidents in 2009

Crime and automotive accidents decreased in the City of Pella in 2009. That’s according to data recently compiled by the Pella Police Department, which showed a 17 percent decrease in overall crime and a 22 percent decline in accidents. Pella Police Chief Michael Marcinkowski says a down year economically may have had some impact on those statistics, but largely credits pro-active law enforcement and increased public visibility for the decrease in both statistical categories.
