Our agency would like to express our gratitude to Zach Merchant and 13WMAZ for highlighting the increase in emergency calls for our city. Our officers strive to always respond in a timely manner, however as Zach explains, calls must be prioritized in order to respond effectively. 

It is an honor and privilege to serve our community. We hope you consider the other incidents we are being called to if our response time isn't as timely as you prefer for your incident.

 For example, we were asked yesterday why we were delayed in responding to a traffic accident with no injuries. To explain, during that time frame we were also called to 2 traffic accidents with injuries, a domestic dispute, an assault/battery incident, a suicide call, a missing person call, and 4 traffic accidents with no injuries.  

Again, we always strive to respond in a timely manner, thank you for always supporting our agency. It means the world to us.  We are #WRPDstrong.

Please note that over the weekend our officers responded to 46 Domestic calls. 

These calls can be very unpredictable and dangerous at times. 

For example, at approximately 9:08PM Sunday night our officers responded to a residence on the 200 block of Chadwyck Circle in reference to a Domestic Dispute call. Our officers and supervisors on scene were able to get the victims out of the home and convince the suspect to come out of the attic where he had been hiding.

Officers gained information from inside the home that the suspect was armed and considered dangerous. The suspect told officers he did not want to go back to prison. He also indicated that he intended to hurt himself or responding officers.  

Our hostage negotiator and SWAT team were deployed to the residence. Great job to all officers involved that were able to use your extensive training and negotiating skills to achieve a peaceful outcome to a potentially life changing incident. The suspect was taken into custody, no one was injured.
