Hello again! Here is the Midtown weekly crime report with community announcements for the week ending 11-27-17. (For this report, Midtown is the area from 35W to Hiawatha, between 28th and 32nd Streets. Portions of the Phillips West, Midtown Phillips, East Phillips, Central, Powderhorn Park and Corcoran neighborhoods are included in Midtown.) The report is attached as a Word file and the text is reprinted below the Safety Center logo.
I’ve also attached a crime map for November 21 to November 27.
There were 13 Part 1 (most serious) crimes reported this week, up from 10 two weeks ago. 9 of the 13 Part 1 crimes this week were thefts.
There were only 2 violent crimes reported in Midtown this week- 1 rape and 1 aggravated assault. For some reason, the aggravated assault at 30xx 4th Ave S doesn’t appear on the crime map. (The aggravated assault on the map actually occurred just outside the Midtown borders.) There were 5 violent crimes two weeks ago.
I’m very happy to report there were 0 robberies-of people or businesses during this week!
MPD officers arrested a total of 10 suspects in Midtown. 6 were booked into jail and 4 were cited and released.
Officers arrested 2 people for felony crimes this week, not counting those arrested for felony warrants.
The 3rd Precinct maintained 2 Focused Enforcement Areas within Midtown this week.
I have 5 announcements this week. See the report (below and attached) for more details on these items:
· Neighbors In Action has 2 Patrol Shifts scheduled and welcomes more volunteers.
· The Training and Education Center (TEC) is offering a 3-week EmploymentEmpowerment Coursebeginning Monday, December 4.

Please let me know if you have an announcement you’d like me to include in an upcoming report.
I always appreciate your comments on these weekly reports. Please let me know what you would like to see added or removed. I want the reports to be as useful as possible.
