BROADVIEW – Broadview Police have confiscated 13 guns from offenders of various crimes since mid-2012, Police Chief Luis Tigera said in a release. 

Starting last year, the department partnered with surrounding police to target serious crime. The Triangle task force resulted in the confiscation of one Glock .40 semi-automatic handgun, several smaller caliber pistols, a rifle, a Sig Sauer 9 mm and other guns. 

Tigera stressed the importance of police’s relationship with residents in fighting crime.

“They are truly our eyes and ears,” he said. “They know as well as any police officer when something doesn’t look right in their own neighborhood. As long as they feel that they have a responsive, empathetic and professional police department to rely on, they’re ready to help us help them, and that’s the key to success in law enforcement – teamwork.”
