Partnership Between Stockton Police and CHP Ends
The partnership between Stockton Police and the CHP came to a close Monday, although assistance will still be offered on a call to call basis, authorities note.
Since the partnership started in Nov. 2012, Stockton’s notorious homicide rate has gone down.
The city still set a record of 71 homicides in 2012, breaking their previous record of 58 set in 2011. However, the city’s number of reported homicides dropped from month to month, with Stockton not seeing a homicide in 2013.
Focusing on getting rid of guns and violent criminals, the partnership managed to remove 68 guns and make 122 felony arrests. Further, 2,184 traffic stops, 106 misdemeanor arrests and 355 parole searches were done during the partnership, according to CHP numbers.
Gov. Jerry Brown originally authorized the partnership back in late October.
