MPD Daily Significant Calls 09/25/2017 to 09/26/2017

September 26, 2017 11:45 AM

From 5:30 a.m. on 09/25/2017 through 5:30 a.m. on 09/26/2017, MPD received 426 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: Conveyance Mental Health – 6:02 a.m.  Officers responded to the 5800 block of Balsam Road to transport a subject (28 year old AAF) to a local hospital for a medical clearance and then Winnebago for an emergency detention.  Two MPD officers conducted the transport to Winnebago and arrived at approximately 3:08 p.m.

2) EAST: Sexual Assault – 6:02 a.m.  Officers responded to the 4400 block of Buckeye Road for a report of a sexual assault of a victim (19 year old WF) by a suspect (33 year old AAM).  The suspect was located and arrested on sexual assault charges.
