Provincetown police activity for 11/18/13 to 12/16/13.

During the four-week period of November 18, 2013 through December 16, 2013, the officers of the Provincetown Police Department responded to 1,612 calls for service.

In the course of the four weeks, officers responded to 6 domestic disturbance calls, one violation of an abuse prevention order, one report of an assault that had occurred in the past, 2 disturbances and 1 disorderly. There were six reports of harassment, one report of vandalism, one report of property damage, three reported larcenies, one breaking and entering/burglary and one attempt to steal bikes.

Suspicious activity was reported on 4 occasions and suspicious cars were called in twice.

There was one structure fire and two fire/other calls. Several people called to reported downed wires in different areas and there were two false alarms--one for smoke in the area and the other for the smell of gas.

Officers responded to 47 medical calls, two mental evaluations and conducted one Section 12 (mental illness). One person reported missing was found and officers had to assist a health agent at a call.

There were 41 sounding alarms and during routine building checks, officers discovered four open doors that probably should have been locked, an open bus door and an open car trunk.

Officers pulled over 73 motorists, issuing 3 citations and arresting two drivers on OUI (see below).

A number of items were lost and/or found including more than 10 wallets, phones, a bank card, a license, a bracelet, an earring, a wedding ring, a bike, suitcases, a Honda scooter and a Porsche key.

There was an abundant number of animal calls including 4 undescribed calls, a found Husky, several loose dogs, two lost dogs, one dog outside and one report of dogs in a car. Strangely, no cat calls. On the wild side, there was an injured duck, an injured seagull, a dead fox, a dead coyote, a dolphin off shore and a raccoon in someone's yard. Probably most perplexing, was the report of a mackeral buried in someone's yard. (Yes, a mackerel.)
