Scottville police department was busier in 2012

January 22, 2013

SCOTTVILLE — The Scottville Police Department had a busy 2012. During the city commission meeting Monday, Police Chief Mark Barnett presented the department’s activity report.

Police responded to 1,868 incidences, compared to 1,549 in 2011 and 1,128 in 2010. Of those incidences, 1,004 (53%) were self initiated by the department, compared to 727 (46%) in 2011. Self initiated is something like a traffic stop, rather than a 911 call.

Of the 1,868 incidences, 851 were complaints/investigations resulting in 51 arrests, 291 traffic citations and 47 parking citations. In 2011 the department had 81 arrests.
