Dover Police Announce Return of Street Crimes Unit 5-18-2015

The Dover Police Department Street Crimes Unit is returning effective Monday, May 18th.  The unit was previously implemented on a temporary basis after a rash of shooting incidents in the late summer/fall of 2014 until the new year.  During that time, the unit made several arrests by taking an aggressive, zero-tolerance approach to all criminal acts.  As a result of four homicides and numerous shooting incidents leading up to the most recent shooting in Capital Green on Friday, May 15th, the department is reinstating the unit effective immediately for the foreseeable future.
