August '06 Norwood Police stats

A new monthly feature

We thought it might be useful and informative to start publishing numbers the NPD provides for their total call volume and some of the more serious incident categories they track. Unfortunately, the report is too lengthy to publish all of the categories; and without any prior historical data yet, it’s impossible to draw any conclusions by comparing. So here goes -

Total NPD calls received for August: 2,853 = 92 per day = 3.8 per hour

Partial breakdown:

Auto Accidents: 78
Criminal Damage: 58
Dom. Violence: 35
Fights: 40
Burglary: 34
Traffic Stops: 298
DUI: 6
Assault: 20
Noise Complaints: 50
Theft: 145
Theft/Motor Vehicle: 21
