Burglary, assault, drug offenses and fraud top the list of crimes committed in Yuma. On this episode of Arizona Edition Live, KAWC’s Lou Gum speaks with Lieutenant Scott Legros to talk about the types of crime committed in Yuma and who is committing them. 

We invited Lt. Legros because he was part of a September presentation to members of the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce, along with a colleague from the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office, on crime in our region. 

Lt. Legros provides insight into some of the challenges faced by the Yuma Police Department as it keeps Yuma streets safe.

Arizona Edition Live airs every Friday at 9:00 a.m. on KAWC 88.9 FM and KAWC.org. It rebroadcasts Saturday mornings at 11:00 a.m.

Lou grew up in Tucson and has a long family history in the state of Arizona. He began his public radio career in 1988 at KNAU in Flagstaff as a classical music DJ and has been hooked on public radio since, transitioning to news after trying his hand at several other careers in publishing and commercial broadcasting. Lou has a degree in American Studies from Arizona State University and was KAWC's Morning Edition host for two and half years before becoming News and Operations Director.
