Park City police officers conduct crime-prevention patrols

The Park City Police Department last week and early this week conducted a series of crime-prevention patrols, stopping at buildings and at least a few construction sites to make sure they were secure.

Police officers in the overnight hours often conduct patrols of neighborhoods or business districts as part of their regular beat work. Some of the patrols last week included:

  • on Monday, Dec. 2 at 3:36 a.m., an officer walked Bonanza Drive testing doors to ensure they were locked. The police indicated the doors appeared secure.
  • at 3:04 a.m. on Dec. 2, a police officer walked through the 1100 block of Deer Valley Drive, finding no problems
  • at 1:54 a.m. on Dec. 2 an officer patrolled Main Street, Swede Alley and Park Avenue, including the China Bridge garage and the garage at the bottom of the Town Lift. The officer reported finding an unspecified code violation but no other problems.
  • at 12:27 a.m., an officer reported checking on construction sites along Royal Street, finding no problems.
  • on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 5:20 a.m., an officer patrolled construction sites along Royal Street. There were no problems, the police said.
  • on Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 3:48 a.m., an officer checked the Spiro Tunnel water treatment plant, finding no problems.

    The police have long said patrols like the ones reported last week and early this week are important in the department’s crime-fighting efforts, saying that patrolling officers may come across criminal activity or their presence could prevent people from committing crimes.
