Body cams top Biloxi police chief’s list of 2016 achievements

BILOXI – Violent crimes in the city decreased significantly in 2016, according to a Biloxi Police Department report.

Also, 70 percent of 120,000 calls for service came from police officers who saw problems out in the community. These statistics and others will be highlighted Wednesday during the annual State of the City address by Mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich.
But as proud as Police Chief John Miller is of those accomplishments, he said the department’s greatest achievement of the year was getting body-worn cameras.
