Excerpts from the 2006 NPD Annual Report

A weekly series - 4th installment

The report includes 35 anecdotes that describe dangerous situations the NPD’s 1st shift dealt with last year. The 10 featured for this week's installment were selected because we think they typify the range of criminal activity our police routinely handle, though sending the entire shift and the Cincinnati Bomb Squad to a residence to safely dispose of unstable dynamite probably isn’t an everyday event. At least, we hope it isn’t.
