Wow, look what I found.
There was 2,223 prescription drugs pills confiscated in traffic stops with an estimated street value of $25,000. There was about 6 grams of heroin taken during a traffic stop and 31 grams of marijuana in traffic stops.
All this done by Perrysburg Township police in August. Such information is readily available through a link on the police department's Facebook page, or township website. I commend the department for posting it.
Most of the time I'm on Facebook, I view it as time I'll never get back. But not this time. This time I ran across a link to the township police department's crime stats page.
The department revamped its statistics page which categorizes every arrest and occurrence of crime. It released stats from August as well as year-to-date information.
The most interesting part that Deputy Chief Michael Gilmore included was a major highlights section, which listed the specific drugs seized.
There was 341 traffic stops made, 1,403 total calls to police, and 12,600 miles driven by township officers in August.
Also in the report is a page which lists every accident the department has a report on in the past 90 days. And within a few days of the accident report being posted, it is available in a PDF format. As a Perrysburg Township resident, I find this very eye-opening.
After clicking through and browsing a few accident reports, it seems like St. Rt. 795 is a major roadway for accidents with people pulling out in front of cars and causing havoc.
If you are interested in crime, accidents, or what drugs are in cars in Perrysburg Township. I encourage you to check the police department's stats page located here: http://www.perrysburgtownship.us/departments/police/police-statistics. And you might want to check it monthly. If you are like me, you might find it interesting to see what is going on.
And hopefully you don't find your name listed in the traffic accident reports.
