MPD Notable Calls 01/20/2021 to 01/21/2021

January 21, 2021 9:42 AM


The information provided below about some of the calls officers responded to 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 6:00 a.m. on 01/20/2021 through 6:00 a.m. on 01/21/2021, MPD received 355 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials.  A breakdown of the calls for service per district is as follows: Central (42), East (88), Midtown (49), North (71), South (40), West (34), and Other (31).  "Other" is used for calls that either do not have a sector or the sector is not in the City.  This would be used in the case of one of our officers assisting another law enforcement agency.  



SOUTH: Injured Person – 5:58 a.m.  Officers, along with MFD, were initially dispatched to a pulseless non-breathing subject.  Area was checked and no one was located.  Officers were later dispatched to a local hospital where a subject arrived with a head injury and it was determined to be related to the first incident.  Contact made with the subject's spouse.  The subject/victim was conscious at the hospital and could not recall any details for officers on what had occurred.  Investigation continuing.
