March 2011 NPD Statistics Report

Last Monday, we published the first two NPD Statistic Report (see 4/4/11 blog below). In response to readers’ questions in the comment box, Lt. Williams sent the following explanation:

“To clear up some confusion on these statistics, the total number of incidents is all police activity for that month. This includes officer initiated actions such as traffic stops as well as radio dispatched runs. The total number of reports is the actual number of reports taken by our police officers for that month including non-criminal reports such as Aided Cases and General Conditions reports. As for the Part One crimes reported, a majority of these are thefts.

Plans are being made to begin mapping the crimes reported and making it available to the public. I will keep you updated on our progress. Finally, total arrests includes all arrests made in the City of Norwood. This includes people who are wanted by other agencies on warrants or capiases.”
