COTOBUZZ RELEASES CRIME 

& VANDALISM MANAGEMENT TOOL 

June 04, 2006

In its continued commitment to public safety, on June 1, 2006, CotoBuzz unveiled a Crime and Vandalism Management tool (see below for first installment), containing key metrics and a side-by-side comparison between Coto de Caza and Ladera Ranch. “This is valuable information for our communities”, said Charles Gibson, President of the Ladera Ranch Public Safety Committee.

 

Until now, the only statistics available to concerned citizens have been the ones contained in the Sheriff’s Blogger.  For private communities such as Coto de Caza, private security statistics are either misleading or non-existing.  In the words of former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani from his speech at DMD New York in June 2002 when he was asked by an audience member how he got crime under control, he replied the city set up the right tracking metrics and benchmarks. Giuliani said, "If you can't measure it, you can't manage it; and you can't manage it if you are not measuring it!. 

We thanks SSD/OCSD’s Kris Garcia for her continued support in developing these invaluable tools!

 

Criminal incidents between Coto de Caza and Ladera Ranch, on a per-capita basis seem to be too close to call.  Whereas the non-criminal incident prize goes to Ladera.
