All calls for law enforcement service are prioritized based on the information provided by the caller. Officers are sent as soon as possible, and generally there is very little delay between the receipt of a call and the dispatching of an officer.
Sometimes, usually due to heavy volume or extreme weather, calls will be prioritized based on the following criteria:
- "In progress" threat of injury or to life
- "In progress" threat to property
- Threats to life or property that have not occurred
- Incidents that have occurred but there are no suspects in the area
- Other incidents
