2020 MPD Accountability Report and MPD Notable Calls 05/19/2021 to 05/20/2021

May 20, 2021 8:24 AM



Our 2020 Accountability Report has been released to our website. What is this report? One of our core values recognizes the need for continuous improvement. This report is just one way we attempt to meet this goal. The report provides an overview of the most critical aspects of policing: Professional Standards & Internal Affairs
complaint/investigation process, vehicle pursuits, Use of force and Squad crashes. 


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 05/19/2021 through 6:00 a.m. on 05/20/2021, MPD received 424 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 (81), East (93), Midtown (59), North (72), South (44), West (48), and Other (27).  "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.
