From 6:00 a.m. on 01/18/2024 through 6:00 a.m. on 01/19/2024, MPD received 461 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 (60), East (95), Midtown (94), North (87), South (62), West (55), and Other (8). "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.

Priority calls for service only between 7:15pm and 9:05pm.
