From 5:30 a.m. on 08/08/2017 through 5:30 a.m. on 08/09/2017, MPD received 462 calls for service. This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials.
Certain calls have recurrent themes in terms of time and labor intensity. For example, when individuals are taken for an evaluation due to a mental health issue or episodic break, MPD does an extensive collaboration with Journey Mental Health in determining the least restrictive option. These are always two officer calls and can routinely last between 5-8 hours (or more). Emergency Detention conveyances are taken to the Winnebago Mental Health Hospital in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This is a five hour round-trip, including intake, that takes two officers out of our community and creates challenges for us as we attempt to service calls.
1) WEST: Assist Police – 1:44 p.m. Officers were dispatched to the area of McKee Road and Silverton Trail regarding a Taylor County Sheriff's Department request to apprehend a suspect.

The suspect then threatened to kill officers and starting spitting at them. Two officers, along with several MFD Firefighters, was exposed to spittle and blood (although this did not rise to the statutory definition of a "significant exposure).
