EPD incidents kept increasing in 2005
An increasing number of incidents kept Ellsworth Police Department officers even busier last year than in 2004, according to the EPD's 2005 annual report.
The report shows there were 3,432 offenses recorded in '05. That compares with 3,281 calls to the department in '04.
Enforcement of traffic laws demands much of the officers' time, Police Chief Greg Place wrote in the report. Bad checks continue to thrive and gas drive-offs are becoming more frequent, Place stated.
