Police Department Releases Annual Report

Merriam Police Annual Report

The Merriam Police Department issued its 2017 Annual Report at the Feb. 26 City Council meeting. Merriam Police Chief Michael Daniels told councilmembers the report highlights the department's building remodel, patrol statistics, and officers’ involvement in the community.

The report also features a section about Data-Driven Approaches to Crime and Traffic Study (DDACTS) enforcement, which the department implemented in March 2017. Chief Daniels said the geomapping program identifies areas with high incidences of crime, crashes, and traffic violations. Merriam officers last year spent more than 1,700 hours – or six percent of all traffic enforcement hours – patrolling areas identified with DDACTS. Those DDACTS hours accounted for 51 percent of all traffic stops and 46 percent of citations for the year.
