SAFE Classes Scheduled for March

The first SAFE classes of 2020 have been scheduled to take place during the school day at Columbus East High School early next month. The SAFE class (Situational Awareness For Everyday) is a one day safety course initially designed for high school senior girls and expanded this year upon requests from the community to include for the first time, classes for boys.

The boy’s SAFE class will be held at CEHS on Tuesday, March 3rd. The girl’s course will be held the next day at Columbus East on Wednesday, March 4th. This popular course is taught by officers from the Columbus Police Department and the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department. This is the sixth year this program has been offered to local students.

During the day long course, law enforcement officers will provide tips and information on how students can be safe next year at college as well as away from school. The afternoon class sessions will be dedicated to basic physical tactics. Lunch will be provided at no charge to the participants.
12th grade boys and girls from CSA New Tech, Columbus Christian School and Hauser High School are encouraged to attend the courses at Columbus East High School.

A class will also be held at Columbus North High School on Monday, March 9th for 12th grade girls who attend the school. A separate SAFE class for boys will also be held at Columbus North High School on a date to be determined later this school year.

Students who are interested in registering for this year’s SAFE classes should contact their school guidance office. There is no charge to attend.

Columbus Sees Continued Drop in Property Crime

The Columbus Police Department witnessed a continued drop in property crime across the city in 2019. This reduction, along with a decrease in property crime over the past three previous years is a trend that CPD officers are working hard to maintain as the new year approaches.

Over the past three years (2015-2018), Columbus has seen a 19% reduction in property crime. In addition, through the first three quarters of 2019, the Columbus Police Department has noted an additional 16% reduction in property crime. This includes a 29% reduction in burglaries, 11% decrease in thefts, and a 58% reduction in vehicle thefts.

Columbus Chief of Police Jon Rohde stated, “We set out to reverse the property crime trends in our community by implementing a strategic solution, and as a result we are seeing historic and unprecedented decreases in property crime.” “While our countless community partners have played a significant role in this success, it’s also rewarding and motivating for our officers to witness the positive results of our transition into a new and cutting edge method of policing.” “As we recognize this great accomplishment, our work is far from over and we will continue to find innovative ways to further reduce crime.”

With the holiday shopping season in full swing, CPD would like to remind the public to report suspicious activity to law enforcement. Never leave valuable items unattended in your vehicle or on your porch, and if a holiday deal seems too good to be true, it is probably a scam.

Thank you Chevrolet of Columbus for all the holiday fun!
