The Mayor, City Officials, The Community, and Orange Police kicked-off an event where the city's biking patrol unit will continue to keep residents safe while patrolling every neighborhood in the city.
According to public record, violent crime in Orange has drastically declined compared to this time in 2016.
Officials attributed the drop to City officers and the community working together to report criminal activity in several parts of the city.
Last year, around this time, we've counted about ten (10) shootings that fatally injured four (4).

Records show other instances of violent crime declining below fifty percent in the city.
Orange Finest Police, The Community, and City Officials were all instrumental in working at eradicating criminal activity in the town at this point.
