Police Log - Sutton MA Police Department


January 10, 2011 - January 16, 2011

We did have a car vs deer this week, near Central Turnpike and Putnam Hill Road. Please drive carefully out there, hitting a deer is no fun for the deer or for the car! We also had two chimney fires. It's that time of year where we start cranking up our fires to keep our houses warm. Make sure your chimney is clean and ready!

Based on the raw data, here is the breakdown of what the police worked on this week. There were 252 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:
