During May, the Madison Police Department addressed 2,833 incidents in the North District. That is an average of 91 incidents per day.
As a reminder, most incidents are calls for service from citizens. These calls could be for reports of crime, but could also be for non-criminal occurrences like traffic crashes, civil disputes or parking complaints. Activities that officers initiate on their own will also account for incidents in these totals - for example, activities like a traffic stop for speeding or some time spent on foot patrol. Incident titles are created when the call is originated or first received by a dispatcher. This original title may not always reflect what actually occurred and what is ultimately investigated by the MPD.
