Crime drops in Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla.– Fort Myers Police officials met with council members in Fort Myers to discuss how they can improve their department.

Police said they are proud of the progress they have made in the last four years because crime decreased. From 2016 to 2020, property crimes decreased by 21%.

When it comes to burglaries, from 2016 to 2020 they dropped by 45%.

Fort Myers Police Chief Derrick Diggs said he believes their ‘place based enforcement’ helped. This means the department focuses patrols on high crime areas.

Chief Diggs is proud of the department’s progress, but wants to improve community relationships.

City officials are partnering with the police department to hand out a community survey. It will be sent to all Fort Myers residents to see what changes they want to see.

The goal with doing all of this is to improve the department.
