Assistant City Manager Mike Sullivan and newly designated Fire Chief Gregg Massey teamed up to deliver a brief report on crime statistics for the city last week to Rotary Club members.
The advance reports of 2022 police and fire statistics were presented at the Tuesday, Dec. 6, Farmersville Rotary Club meeting.
Sullivan stepped back briefly into his former police chief role to deliver the report for Police Chief Marsha Phillips, who succeeded Sullivan as chief of police.
According to Sullivan, Phillips was ill and could not attend the meeting.
In his report, Sullivan said as of last week, the Farmersville Police Department has responded to 5,741 total calls for service in 2022. Forty-seven of those calls were for Tier I offenses, which Sullivan described as aggravated assaults and other such felonies.
The police department has responded to 158 Tier 2 offenses. In addition, Sullivan said the PD has responded to 1,587 traffic stops so far this year, which have produced 646 citations.
Farmersville PD reported 6,114 total calls in 2021, 6,370 in 2020 and 6,028 in 2019, according to data provided by the department.
Sullivan reported that police responded to 109 alarm calls and answered 371 calls to assist other law enforcement agencies. Sullivan said most of the agency assist calls involved the Collin County Sheriff’s Department.
