During August, the MPD addressed 2,787 incidents in the South District. That is an average of almost 90 incidents per day (similar to June and July).
Most incidents are calls for service from citizens. These calls could be for reports of crime, but could also be for non-criminal occurrences like traffic crashes, civil disputes or parking complaints. Activities that officers initiate on their own will also account for incidents in these totals - for example, activities like a traffic stop for speeding or some time spent on foot patrol. Incident titles are created when the call is originated or first received by a dispatcher. This original title may not always reflect what actually occurred and what is ultimately investigated by the MPD.
