CROWLEY – Crowley Chief of Police K.P. Gibson reports the month of June was a busy month for the department as officers have dealt with a variety of calls. “Our officers are working hard to resolve issues in town as well as solve cases to bring closure to victims of crimes. We would like to see cases cleared quickly, but we also want to present a good case to our prosecutors” stated Chief Gibson.

During the month of June, officers responded to 1012 calls for service. Of these calls, 82 adults were arrested and 11 juveniles have been charged with criminal activity. That averages out to an arrest being made for every 10.8 calls for service.
