Major crimes decrease in 1994 in Manchester

January 31, 1995

Manchester Police Chief Donald Myers said major crimes decreased in almost every category in 1994.

He said there were no homicides, rapes or robberies last year or in 1993 in the town, where the local police force is augmented by state police.

Chief Myers said in each of the past two years, there were eight breaking and entering reports and one auto theft.

He said there were 10 cases of aggravated assault last year, down by four from 1993, and 51 thefts, down by eight from the previous year.

Domestic complaints decreased to 45 calls in 1994, four less than 1993.

The number of calls for service increased to 845, 11 more calls than in 1993, he said.

Calls for service can range from assisting an elderly or sick person, to a complaint of children playing in the streets, to a parking complaint or any other call not considered a crime, officers said.
