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 2017, the total number of calls for service the Brandon Police Service received was 39117.
As of September 30th, 2018, the Brandon Police Service has received 31398 calls for service. Compared to this period in 2017, the City of Brandon has seen a 2.92% increase in calls for service.
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:
• Specific strategies geared toward areas that have a higher density of calls for service
• Suppression techniques where and when applicable.
