Citrus Heights Police Logs: traffic stops, arrests, calls for service

Sentinel staff report–
The Citrus Heights Police Department on Friday released new summary statistics for the past week, showing a total of 35 arrests, 141 reports taken, and 112 traffic stops.

The department resumed posting daily police logs earlier this month, with weekly summaries being the latest of recent changes. The weekly report was posted on the department’s social media, along with a link to a new page on the city’s website where residents can see a daily report of most incidents police responded to over the past 30 days.

The weekly report, for March 17-23, also showed a total of 1,489 calls for service and 2,662 into dispatch.

Recent activity logs:

Police Chief Alex Turcotte told The Sentinel earlier this month that the department has about 250-300 calls for service on average, with additional phone calls also being fielded by dispatchers. Turcotte said a call for service is “anything that gets an incident number,” and does not include calls where dispatchers were able to resolve the call over the phone and no one was dispatched.

Incidents involving a report being filed are typically where a crime has taken place or when a collision occurs, the chief said. Turcotte said some police activity will not be included in the logs, giving examples of certain domestic violence calls with sensitive information, or incidents involving police surveillance.

Latest arrest logs can also be found on the Citrus Heights Police Department’s logs page.
