The information provided below is about some of the calls officers responded to over the last twenty-four (24) hours. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered from those in the field who were actively working the cases. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as the investigation unfolds.

From 6:00 a.m. on 03/07/2024 through 6:00 a.m. on 03/08/2024, MPD received 436 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 (94), East (80), Midtown (69), North (61), South (38), West (83), and Other (11). "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 from 10:25am to 11:55am, from 1:10pm to 3:13pm and from 6:44pm to 8:15pm.
