Calls for Service Definition
Calls for service are generally represented as calls to “911” for emergency assistance and may also include calls to non-emergency numbers. Each call for service that comes in is assigned a priority based on the type of crime or service that is requested.
Priority 0 through Priority 2:
The most serious offenses and require the most immediate response. Priority 0 calls include crimes such as Assault and Battery, Domestic Violence, and Injury Accidents while priority 1 calls include crimes such as robbery, hit and run accidents, bomb threats and panic alarms.
Priority 3 through Priority 7:
Calls labeled 3 through 7 continue to decrease in their need for immediate response unless there are extenuating circumstances. Priority 3 calls for service include things such as neighbor troubles, animal complaints, civil matters, and weapons violations not covered by higher priority classifications.
Priority 8 and Priority 9:
Calls labeled priority 8 and 9 are less serious but important community calls that include things such as abandon autos and found property.
