My post yesterday about how often police solve murders caught the attention of our media partner, NBC 7/39. They followed up on the statistics I posted and asked Chula Vista’s police why they’re solving murders less often than other agencies.
Chula Vista Police spokesman Bernard Gonzalez told NBC the city’s proximity to the border and socioeconomic conditions, as well as the sophistication of criminals and budget cutbacks factor in how often police solve murders.
But do those factors explain the disparity between police agencies across the county? Please continue to share your insights by posting in the comments or sending an email to email@example.com
And check out this video to see NBC’s report:
