Congratulations Maywood! No Murders For One Year

The Village of Maywood is celebrating an important milestone.  For the first time that anyone can remember, there has not been a single murder in Maywood for one year.  As recently as 2003 there were 20 murders in Maywood.  In 2006 there were 11 murders in Maywood, 5 in 2007, 12 in 2008 and 2 in 2009.  Village and Police officials have been hard at work trying to reduce that number.  More officers were put on the street and about 79 surveillance cameras have been placed at problem locations in the town.  Police officers will approach groups of people standing on street corners and ask questions of them. 

Congratulations to Maywood for coming a long way!
