Hello Corbett Residents and Affiliates,
Iíve attached the crime log for October as well 1-yearís worth of crime logs sorted by incident and another one sorted by location. Iím not as handy with compiling charts and stats as I thought Iíd be, so for now one of our clerical personnel will be helping me with some charts or stats help us analyze average vehicle break-in days/times.
Sadly, one of our search and rescue volunteers, Don Gomez, died during a training exercise. Further information about the incident can be viewed at: http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2009/10/search_and_rescue_instructor_d.html
Don was a tremendous asset to our agency and he volunteered a lot of his time to helping with all of the search and rescue operations that you see listed each month.
There was a ďroad rageĒ incident a couple of weeks ago on Haines Rd. in which a man did not like how someone was driving. The people in the other car stopped and confronted the man, who in turn purportedly aimed a firearm at the individuals. The man was cooperative with deputies. He was charged with Menacing (placing another person(s) in fear of imminent danger).
Lastly, this week I was lucky enough to attend a 1-day terrorism training class. The instructor had inside knowledge of the Beslan school siege in Russia in 2004 in which countless men, women and children were killed. His message to us is that we should be vigilant and report anything that strikes us an odd or suspicious. In the Beslan tragedy, there were numerous citizens that had seen odd occurrences leading up to the attacks but these incidents went unreported. So please do report anything that doesnít seem quite right. It may be a suspicious car, increased activity in an area, a person walking in a place that is out of the ordinary etc.. It could be anything. Please report it. We donít mind; itís our job to respond.
Deputy Joe Graziano
