On average, how many calls and/or reports per day do you deal with? I know the amount varies, so just give your best estimate of the average number.

For me, it's usually somewhere between 8-12. What's your workload like!?

I just left patrol a few months ago to take a detective job. Patrol averages about 15 dispatched details but maybe 4-5 written reports. That's day shift. Swing and graves a whole hell of a lot more.

In detectives right now I have 50 active cases I am working.

I guess it 'averaged' about a dozen or so. I have had as few as three or four and as many as 30 depending on what they were about and of course if the damn moon is full.

I'll go along with bigD and say 8-12. Every call we go on is a report call, from loose livestock to Homicide. We even have to bang out a narrative for a traffic citation.

Are you a 911 PSAP that takes all the calls and transfers to the appropriate jurisdiction? Or do you work for a separate agency that answers and dispatches their own calls? Inquiring minds want to know... :)

I usually have about 4 reportable IBRs, some days more some days less. Not including assists and patrol checks we range about 10 to 20 calls for service per officer. On all calls for service we have to fill out a small narrative.

I am unable to release that information at this point in time due to the sensitive nature of my sources...

...yet, as an interesting segue...as we are in the realm of workload, it may be interesting to see how those calls are divided up on one's shift, as in, how many officers/deputies are on your shift covering how many square miles, etc. If you aren't familiar with your own city/county geography, following is a link to the U.S. Census Bureau that has all kinds of useless facts for you to wow your partners with (if you feel so inclined to do so, that is).


http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/


My shift, for example, covers approximately 790 square miles with 8 deputies, 2 Sgts., and 1 Lt. That's not including the special units out and about though, i.e., traffic, interdiction, narcotics, etc. But the 8 of us take care of most of the workload (calls for service). OK...the Sgts. do help out a little...and when needed even the Lt. pitches in. :)

We average 20 - 25 calls a day so the guys are pretty active. That does not include motor vehicle activity or what our detective does.

Depending on my assignment on the day shift I log3-15 calls per day. If I work a beat in the downtown area it's usually on the lower end unless you coun't proactive things like the drugs, drunk idiots. That would bring the numbers up.

Dispatched anywhere between 2-10, not including regular patrol. Small town here. LOTS of drugs though.

I work for a smaller metropolitan agency in CA. We cover approximately 6 square miles with 6 officers and 1 sergeant, not to mention any special units on duty. We average 120 - 160 calls in a 24 hour period. I work nights which accounts for about a third of those numbers. On a hot night I've responded to as many as 50 or more calls for service, but usually average 25 or so. I probably average 2-3 reports per night.

I am dumb founded that anyone should have to write a report for filling out a citation, that would generate 650 addiitional reports per month at my agency. Not to mention writing something because it was a call for service...thank goodness for CAD, most of our go nowhere calls can be referred back to the computer as a CAD report.

We also have Community Service Officers (Non sworn) who handle cold calls and non-injury accidents. They are worth their weight in gold.

bigD and GTS 197 I feel ya, loose livestock from hell........ I work 6P-6A, There's 6 of us, if we're lucky no one calls in, 1700 square miles of county roads, you could get on average 12 calls per shift, half of those report calls, and we work all of our Misdemeanors and any Felony arrests. sm hansen, you better stay where you're at with that report call ratio.
