Police Calls For Service
What are we tracking?The Brandon Police Service records all calls for service. These calls include animal control, bylaw enforcement, summons and subpoena service, missing persons reports, traffic accidents/hazards, traffic and pedestrian stops, community and school presentations, breach of peace, assistance to the general public and other agencies as well as all criminal activity.
How are we measuring this?These occurrences are recorded on our CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) system. These incidents are compiled into a report on a monthly basis.
What progress are we making?In 2018, the total number of calls for service the Brandon Police Service received was 40063. The Brandon Police Service Executive utilizes this information as part of intelligence-led policing initiatives. When increases in calls for service occur, the most suitable strategies are developed, including: education, specific strategies geared toward areas that have a higher density of calls for service, suppression techniques where and when applicable.
Please note that the Brandon Police Service Scorecard totals may be subject to change to more accurately reflect our Records Management System. Enquiries regarding these changes can be directed to the Brandon Police Service Media Relations Officer
