Police Log - Sutton MA Police Department


January 03, 2011 - January 9, 2011

This is the first week that I've received the full printout of the police log to look at. It's quite fascinating how much our police force does for us! Let me know if there's any other information you're interested in!

Based on the raw data, here is the breakdown of what the police worked on this week. There were 267 items on my report (which had a few things removed).

The number of events the police handled on each day of the week:

A 209A is a restraining order. COD is Cop On Duty / Court Duty. It's listed in relationship to the Uxbridge Court House and typically involves an officer appearing at court in relationship to testifying about tickets / arrests / etc.

The same figures in a pie chart, which helps to demonstrate that motor vehicle issues were by far the most common event the police dealt with:
