Rhodes offers council August police statistics
CENTREVILLE — During the month of August, the Centreville Police Department made a total of six criminal arrests, Chief of Police Charlie Rhodes said during the Thursday, Sept. 21, Centreville Town Council meeting while giving his monthly recap of law enforcement activity in the town.
Of the six total arrests, five were for adults and one was for a juvenile. Four onview arrests were made, two for controlled and dangerous substances and possession of a firearm, and one for theft. One warrant was served for failure to appear in court.
The one juvenile arrest was for theft.
Throughout the month, officers issued 21 arrestable citations, including 12 for driving on a suspended or revoked license, two for driving without a license and seven for other arrestable offenses. Other traffic enforcement activity included 45 non-arrestable traffic citations, 194 motor vehicle warnings, 17 safety equipment repair orders and 32 parking citations.
The Redspeed Automated Speed Enforcement Cameras located on Railroad and Chesterfield Avenues issued a combined 83 traffic citations. Rhodes said he believed the number would increase because school is back in session and more people will be driving.
Officers responded to a total of 561 incidents, which included seven motor vehicle collisions.
Centreville Police reports are given by the chief to the council the first meeting of each month to review the previous month’s activity. The Town of Centreville holds its meetings the first and third Thursday of the month at the Liberty Building in town.
