March 18, 5:38 p.m.
Officer Peery responded to a report of a disturbance between an adult male and juvenile female. He arrived and began his investigation and is still trying to document the information he gathered in his report. In this instance, it doesn’t look like anyone went to jail or cited.

March 18, 8:11 p.m.
Officer O’Donnell responded to a disturbance. This call involved non-English speaking persons and Officer O’Donnell had to get creative in interviewing victim, witnesses and suspect.

In this case, the dispatch center used a language line for translation on the original call. Officer O’Donnell then used a Victim Services advocates on speaker phone for translation and then used a witness to translate for the suspect.

In this case, Officer O’Donnell determined there was a dispute over the delivery of a package and one party accused the other of stealing. They also claimed the other tried to stab them with a kitchen knife, but the other party denied this ever happened.

Officer O’Donnell was not able to determine who was telling the truth and there isn’t any physical evidence to support one version of the truth over the other. Regardless, police have documented the incident and sent it to the prosecutor’s office for review.

March 20, 3:13 p.m.
Officer Raab responded to a report of a domestic disturbance. It was reported a man and woman were arguing. When he responded to the location, he could only find the woman.

March 21, 1:06 a.m.
Sgt. Ruschill and Officer Proctor responded to a physical domestic violence call in progress. They arrived and secured the scene and then began their investigation to figure out what happened and if anyone needed to be charged with a crime.
