MPD Daily Significant Calls 06/27/2018 to 06/28/2018

June 28, 2018 10:49 AM

The information contained in my blog is derived from notes provided by MPD Officers-In-Charge (OIC) at the end of their shifts. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered by an OIC from those in the field who were actively working cases. The OIC is sharing what they were being told, in the moment. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as officers, detectives and investigators continue their work.

From 5:00 a.m. on 06/27/2018 through 5:00 a.m. on 06/28/2018, MPD received 502 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials.  For purposes of clarification, the following abbreviations are short-hand for race designations: W=White, AA=African American, NA=Native American, H=Hispanic, ME=Middle Eastern, A=Asian, MR=Mixed Race, U=Unknown.  MPD shifts are staggered as follows: 1st detail=7 a.m. to 3 p.m., 2nd detail=12 p.m. to 8 p.m., 3rd detail=3 p.m. to 11 p.m., 4th detail=8 p.m. to 4 a.m., 5th detail=11 p.m. to 7 a.m.

To further break down the 502 calls for service for the past 24-hours this is how the calls came in per district: Central (97), East (90), Midtown (91), North (68), South (65), West (59), and Other (32).  Other=these are calls for service that either do not have a sector listed or the sector is not in the City.  For example, if one of our officers assists another law enforcement agency, their sector is not listed in our districts so therefore it is listed under "other."


**Priority calls only citywide beginning at 6:23pm. West, Midtown, South, and East back to normal calls at 6:56pm, North back to normal calls at 7:12pm, Central back to normal calls at 8:05pm.**
