Some readers have wondered about the meaning of categories listed in the police activity summary. The police log is now being compiled by computer (rather than by a dispatcher editing rough notes) and records activity in the categories used in the summary.
Directed activity: The police officer is directed to perform certain operations, as opposed to responding to a call for police assistance. There are two main types of directed activity:
Directed activity, radar. The cruiser is directed to park at a designated spot selected because of some reported traffic problem in the area.
Park and walk. Patrol is directed to park the cruiser and to circulate in a specific area. The school campus and the state park are the main areas for park and walk assignments.
Disabled car is just that, a disabled car.
Alarm investigations are recorded separately for fire and residential burglar alarms. When an alarm report is received from an alarm company or residence, the cruiser is sent to investigate. The majority of investigated alarms are caused by equipment malfunction, but patrol must investigate to determine that fact.
Building checks. Town buildings and churches are checked daily. Business and residences are checked at the owners' request.
Traffic complaint. A report from anyone about a traffic problem, speeding, parking in the roadway, etc.
Accident investigation is what a police officer conducts when there has been an accident and includes ongoing responsibility (and paper work) until the case is resolved.
Suspicious person report may originate from a resident or a police officer. These are always investigated by the officer on patrol.
Suspicious vehicle report is made by a resident or police officer when a vehicle is parked in an unlikely place or is doing something unusual, such as driving slowly up and down a street. These are ways investigated.
Radar enforcement occurs when a radar equipped cruiser is dispatched for the specific purpose of stopping speeders.
Traffic violation is any infringement of the Massachusetts motor vehicle code observed by an officer and can include failure to keep right, speeding, lack of headlights, etc.
Medical, general. Includes all 911 calls which are always checked out by patrol. Police respond to fire calls and ambulance calls are are usually first on the scene because they get the call first.
Mutual aid occurs when one community sends police or fire support to another community at that community's request or, in case of fire, according to a schedule for coverage when a town's equipment is tied up on another call.
