South District Update for December

January 1, 2017 3:35 PM

During December, the MPD addressed 2,340 incidents in the South District. That is an average of just over 75 incidents per day – a decrease from both October and November.

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. 

I hope the incident data I shared each month in 2016 was helpful.  I plan to continue this practice throughout 2017.  Please share any feedback that you may have with me so that I can make this practice better moving forward.
