Hoover sees drop in crime

HOOVER, Ala. (WBRC) - Mayor Frank Brocato said Thursday in his annual state of the city address that Hoover has seen a drop in crime.

There has been a 21% drop in robberies. That’s the fifth straight year there has been a reduction in that category.

In addition, car break-ins are down 19% and burglaries 47%.

“The best explanation that I can give is that it’s just a testament to the hard work, that our men and women put in everyday out here protecting Hoover, but it’s also to the citizens themselves,” said Lt. Keith Czeskleba.
