Abstract: A new police chief, Jim Everett, began work on December 1, replacing retiring Chief Gerald Williams. A memorial for officers slain in the line of duty was completed in the courtyard of the new Aurora Municipal Justice Center. In April, a footbeat program was begun in District I. The goal of the program is to establish "community contact and support along with enforcement . . . to create a safe living and business environment along the East Colfax Corridor." Footbeat coverage is 6 days a week. Using bicycles to patrol high crime/gang areas received new emphasis during the year. The bike teams patrol areas such as schools, parks, apartment complexes, and shopping centers, operating under a proactive philosophy. The department was awarded a Federal grant to create a multiagency task force to direct specific intelligence and enforcement efforts designed to disrupt and dismantle organized, street-gang drug activities. Through another Federal grant, the department is acquiring computer equipment and programs that will enable crime analysts to show crime locations on computer-generated maps. Additionally, a computer program will provide sophisticated patrol-deployment analysis and beat-design capability. Crime statistics show that crime in Aurora was held to a 1.8- percent increase. The city's fastest growing crime was auto theft, which has been linked to gang activity. 2 tables and a chart that shows the frequency of the commission of index offenses
