From 6AM(11/5)-6AM(11/6) our officers responded to
(11/5) 6AM-6PM 9 officers and 3 supervisors were on duty.
(11/5) 6PM-(11/6) 6AM 10 officers and 2 supervisors were on duty.
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.
