During March, the MPD addressed 1,729 incidents in the South District. That is an average of almost 56 incidents per day, which is an increase from February.
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.
