SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Being a police officer can be a tiring undertaking. Officers are constantly working to keep dangerous objects and people away from local streets.
Salt Lake City police provided a summary of figures of some illegal bounties they have collected over the past month.
With Utah Vehicle Theft Classified among one of the highest nationwide, SLCPD says it recovered 169 stolen vehicles last month. They say the percentage averages around six vehicles recovered per day.
With drug distributors using Utah “well-developed transport infrastructure”, federal officials say the state plays a “significant staging area” for the illicit distribution of goods across the United States
The SLCPD played its part in keeping the drugs off the streets by seizing a total of $57,961.60 in February.
Authorities say they also seized 35 firearms. SLCPD states that when something is high priority, their average response time to a priority 1 situation is around 10 minutes and 25 seconds.
Just another day in the life of a Salt Lake City cop.
