Police Calls

This table includes both calls that are phoned in and calls that are initiated by officers on patrol. Calls that are determined to be "unfounded" are also included. An example of that status would be an officer arriving at the location of a traffic crash to discover that no crash has occurred there.

Police calls should not be confused with Uniform Crime Reports. Uniform Crime Reports include crimes that have met standards established by the FBI for nationwide reporting. 

A blank cell within this table means that we did not track the number of police calls for that event type for the corresponding year.
