Slider Crime on the Steep, Downward Slide

Posted on Dec 17, 2018

The Fulton County Police Department achieved double-digit crime reduction in 2017. How did they do it? Here’s your introduction to the inside story.  Get the full scoop as chronicled by Major Wade Yates and Chief Darryl Halbert in the official case study.


Introducing Chief Darryl Halbert, Major Wade Yates, and the Fulton County Police Department, the surrounding jurisdictions and counties who participated in the multi-agency slider task force, the average citizens in and around Fulton County, Georgia, in addition to the well-known people in town who were victims of slider crime, and the people who watched these slider crimes being carried out on the 6 o’clock news almost every night.


Slider criminals target gas stations. While the victim pumps gas, the perpetrator unlocks the passenger-side door and “slides” over the seat. They then start the ignition—easy with the key fob located in the victim’s pocket only a few feet away. Then the real crime spree begins. Using the stolen vehicle, the perpetrator commits all kinds of crimes—principally robbing pedestrians and breaking into homes, businesses, and other cars. 


Starting in February 2017, with the final procurement of Street Smart in place, the FCPD began tackling the slider crimes in the area, which had been on the rise since early 2016.
