August 19, 2021 8:06 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.

A breakdown of the calls for service per district is as follows: Central (83),East (94), Midtown (86), North (74), South (49), West (57), and Other (63).
