There were 26 medical emergencies and 8 sounding alarms. One dog was reportedly lost, two were loose and two loose dogs were reunited with their owners.

Officers pulled over 31 drivers and issued 9 citations. One person was arrested during a motor vehicle stop, see below.

Although wild animals were a bit more tame this week (see rabid squirrel), folks continued to lose their possessions including bags, several wallets, a driver's license, a credit card, a camera, several phones, some jewelry, glasses, keys, a purse and a jacket (yes, someone called the police about their lost jacket).
