From WSOC News and Other Sources: Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said they have made arrests in 45 out of the 56 homicides in 2010, continuing a trend of clearing more homicides than the national average.
Maj. Vicki Foster held a presser at CMPD Headquarters sans her white CMPD Command Staff uniform to say that the department's 80 percent clearance rate in 2010 is down from 91 percent in 2009, but still well ahead of the national average of 63 percent.
“We're being more proactive on our side as far as getting out into the community and asking people what have they seen and what have they heard," Foster said. “We've had an increase in tips coming in, so we definitely want to say the community is really engaged and really involved.”
Foster goes on to say: "If you commit a murder in Charlotte-Mecklenburg then we are going to catch you. What I say it's just a matter of time,"
