Prescott Valley has seen a drop in part one crimes since last year. Mayor Kell Palguta says “Part 1” crimes in the town are down 21-percent overall from 2020. “Part 1” crimes are defined by the FBI as homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft, arson and human trafficking. As those areas are seeing a decline in cases, unfortunately domestic violence is up 33-percent. Palguta thanks Prescott Valley residents who “take block watch serious and do their part to report suspicious activity.” Remember if you see something, say something.
