Mangano, Dale Report 77 Burglary Arrests

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Nassau County Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Dale today reported the arrest of 77 burglary-related individuals in the past 8 weeks, with 54 arrests related strictly to residential burglaries. The arrest of eight individuals resulted in the closure of 34 burglary cases in 2012. According to police officials, a significant number of individuals arrested for home burglaries were addicted to or seeking prescription drugs. In January 2012, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano directed Nassau County Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Dale to crack down on burglaries.

“Today we send a clear message to burglars – stay out of Nassau,” said County Executive Mangano. “The department’s intelligence led policing efforts including Real Time Intelligence, the Criminal Investigative Rapid Response Team (CIRRT), and the Aggressive Forensic Evidence Program including DNA, Fingerprint and other trace evidence has assisted officers in successfully capturing burglars.”

“Putting burglars behind bars is a top priority,” said Acting Police Commissioner Dale. “Nassau’s new Community Policing Plan will reassign 48 police officers from their desks and place them in the community to help address crimes such as this. If you break into a home in Nassau County, we will find you and arrest you.”

Nassau County Police Chief of Department Steven Skrynecki also provided an analysis of statistics related to burglaries. Since 2010 when County Executive Mangano took office, statistics indicate that overall major crime is down approximately 10% while residential burglaries are up by less than 1%.
