Good Day to All.  I am back on the blog grid again after a short hiatus. My posts should be every few days or so. In these tough times, when we hear of decreases in things, that is usually a bad thing.  In this instance, we have seen a decrease in the number of crimes in Sandy Springs from 2007 to 2008. Lets see if the trend holds up for 2009.

The Sandy Springs Police Department is reporting a decrease in crime from 2007 to 2008 including zero homicides. The City saw an overall decrease of nearly 8 percent.
