Shoplifting, Assault Suspect Captured Through Teamwork

On March 23, 2024, a male suspect entered a retail establishment in the 3600 block of East Grant Road and grabbed several items of merchandise. He then walked past all points of sale without paying for the items. When he was confronted by employees, the suspect chose to assault one of them before fleeing on foot.

This location is in the Operations Division Midtown (ODM) PNI (Place Network Investigations) operating area, and officers are familiar with many of the individuals engaging in criminal activity in the area. They were able to quickly identify the suspect. A lineup was shown to the victim, who positively identified the suspect, and a stop and arrest was placed but the male was not immediately located.

On March 24th, while conducting proactive policing in the 3900 block of East Grant Road (still in the PNI area), CSO Lori Oien observed the suspect just north of a restaurant with two other individuals. She recognized him from an internal flyer regarding the previous incident. Once she positively identified him, she immediately contacted Midtown Community Response Team (CRT) officers, while keeping an eye on the suspect and directing them to his whereabouts. CRT officers contacted the suspect and took him into custody without incident.

Parks and POPP

April was a quiet month for community events; however, ODM has remained busy.

We continue to work with community partners at the 100-Acre Wood Bike Park.  Davis-Monthan needs to do some work in a small section of the property, so we are working with their personnel as well as community partners to move people who are camping in the area into shelters.

We've expanded our Problem-Oriented Policing (POPP) to include what we're calling Park POPPs. Officers and CSOs are dispatched throughout the day to check on certain parks: Golf Links, La Madera, and Reid Park. These Park POPPs, like other POPPs in the division, will rotate every 6 months. If you don't see your local park listed, it may be in a future rotation. This does not mean we're not paying attention to other parks! We are - and keep calling when you see something, please.

Division Info

Operations Division Midtown (ODM), sometimes referred to as “Team 3,” encompasses approximately 44 square miles. The geographical boundaries of the division are River Road to the north, Craycroft Road to the east, Aviation Highway/Golf Links Road to the south and Campbell Avenue to the west. Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and the University of Arizona also lie within the division. The ODM substation is located at the Patrick K. Hardesty Midtown Multi-Service Center, 1100 S Alvernon Way.

Operations Division Midtown is one of four divisions in the Patrol Services Bureau of the Tucson Police Department. The division’s command staff consists of a captain and two lieutenants. Most officers working in the division are assigned to one of 10 patrol squads, each supervised by a sergeant. ODM members provide 24-hour police service to all who live, work, or just pass through our division.

In addition to patrol squads, ODM has a Community Response Team (CRT). The CRT’s main responsibility is to proactively address crime problems specific to Midtown Division neighborhoods.

Also housed in the substation is the Neighborhood Crimes Section, comprised of a sergeant and a squad of detectives. They investigate a variety of crimes committed within the division’s boundaries. In addition to case follow-up and criminal arrests, detectives offer on-site assistance and expertise to patrol officers.

Operations Division Midtown is unique in that its boundaries fall within five of the six City Council Wards. Parts of Wards 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 are interspersed throughout the division. The division is also home to the city's only Level I trauma center, Banner University Medical Center.

Neighborhood Info

Operations Division Midtown (ODM) is comprised of many diverse neighborhoods. Fifty-four of these neighborhoods have formed Neighborhood Associations that are registered with the City's Housing and Community Development Department.

ODM community members can request information and assistance with Crime Free Multi-Housing and other crime prevention programs by contacting Community Service Officer (CSO) Ramon Silvas at 520-837-7428. The division's many CSOs actively work to resolve quality of life issues and assist patrol officers by taking some of the lower priority (non-life-threatening) calls for service.

In addition to their regular duties, ODM lead police officers (LPOs) act as liaisons with division Neighborhood Associations and schedule the attendance of ODM personnel at Neighborhood Association meetings or functions. A community resource sergeant, a community resource officer, and a criminal intelligence officer are also on staff to serve as community liaisons. Their focus is to work on issues that will improve the quality of life for the community we serve.
