DOWNTOWN — Crime in Burbank dropped 8% in 2009, mirroring a slide across Los Angeles County despite escalating unemployment and a sluggish economy, according to year-end figures released Monday by the Police Department. The number of homicides dropped from two in 2008 to one last year, according to the department’s FBI uniform crime report. Interim Burbank Police Chief Scott LaChasse, a 32-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, attributed declines across the region in part to “hardening the target,” the law enforcement tactic of beefing up security to minimize the risk of an attack or theft.

CITY CENTER — As part of the cost-cutting measures approved by the City Council in June, the Burbank Police Department this month removed the lone officer dedicated to patrolling parks, securing and locking bathrooms and monitoring illicit behavior. The move, combined with the elimination of a dedicated retail crime officer, is expected to save the department $252,452 — 18.85% of the total $1.34-million budget cut. Park patrol responsibilities have been folded into officer beat patrols, with most of the onus on securing and locking bathrooms falling to a custodial contractor, officials said, even as records show illicit behavior at parks to be on the rise.
