This project was completed under an Advancing Community Policing grant (#97-0C-WX-0060) made to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police
Department (CMPD) by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of
Community Oriented Policing Services.
Most of the work on this project was carried out by Officers Daniel
Cunius and G. Eric Rost of the CMPD. They identified the problem of theft from construction sites as warranting attention in the course of their routine patrol work. They subsequently nominated it for more intensive examination and, when the study was approved, compiled much of the needed data, acquired information from builders, participated in all stages of the analysis, monitored implementation of the agreed-upon response, prepared, and presented the findings of the study. Throughout all stages of the project, they were strongly supported by their captain, E. Charles "Chuck" Johnson, who also participated in all stages of the analysis, in engaging the builders, and in presenting the findings of the study. Technical assistance in the compilation and mapping of the data was initially provided by Carl
Walter, who also acquired and integrated data from other county agencies. Ryan Jackson succeeded him
