Property crimes
on the rise

Staff writer
The Yolo County Sheriff’s Office held a town hall meeting in Winters on Wednesday, Feb. 18, to give an upodate on recent crime in the Winters area and answer questions from community members.
Sergeant Ray Jimenez of the Community Resources Department first described how Yolo County is divided into different service zones by the Sheriff’s office. Winters is part of the “red zone” of western Yolo County. It stretches from Rumsey in the north of the Capay Valley down to and east of Winters to County Road 95, up to County Road 26 and extends to Monticello Dam in the west. The southern border is Putah Creek. This 1,000 square mile area has one deputy on duty 24/7.
In 2014, the Winters area had a total of 1,758 calls for service. Of these, 29 were reports of theft or theft in progress; 19 were burglary reports; 10 were robbery reports; 27 were domestic violence; 12 were battery; trespassers were 34; disturbances were 84; and vandalism 14. The remaining nearly 1,500 service calls were for things like traffic stops, alarms, medical aid, abandoned 911 calls or follow ups. . . .
