2017 is starting off just like 2016 started….WITH A BANG!!! And by BANG we mean lots of SHOOTINGS.
In the first 9 days of January 2017, there have been 9 different shooting incidents reported by the SAPD. The cycle just seems to keep repeating itself, and we hear the streets of Santa Ana are becoming more violent. Most Santa Ana residents can’t understand while all this violence is happening in our city, and want to feel safe in their communities.
Remember last year when the City Council Member tried to convince us crime was down in Santa Ana?
Remember last year when the City Council tried to tell us the city does not keep track of violent crime incidents like shootings and stabbings in Santa Ana?
So we decided to keep track of ALL THE VIOLENT CRIME INCIDENTS FOR 2017 in Santa Ana and share them on a Google Map for all of us to see. Any shootings, stabbings, and pedestrian/bicyclists incidents in Santa Ana will be placed on this map and shared every month to remind city officials.
