It is a privilege to submit the 2014 Annual Report for your Aberdeen Police Department. As you view
this information, it is important to recognize the work, skills and abilities of the men and women that
work in the Aberdeen Police Department. 2014 was a very busy year for us and I submit this report
with pride for the accomplishments of the Aberdeen Police Department.
In 2014 your Patrol officers responded to 24,724 calls from our citizens or about 2060 per month. Calls
vary from very minor requests for assistance to very serious felony crimes. In 2014 2023 serious felony
crimes were reported including one homicide. Serious felony crimes include murder, rape, robbery,
aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, auto theft, and arson. Domestic violence crimes showed a slight
increase with 223 reported in 2013 and 233 in 2014.
In 2014 patrol officers investigated 798 reported traffic collisions with 48 of them reported to have
some type of injury. Patrol Officers also issued 2916 citations. Citations are issued using the Statewide
Electronic Collision and Ticket Online Reporting or SECTOR. This reporting method has been utilized
since 2012 and allows officers to issue citations and document traffic accidents using an electronic
scanning (bar code reader system) that fills out the reports and citations for the officers. A collision
investigation that took 30-45 minutes to complete can now be processed in 15 minutes and a citation
which took about 10 minutes to handwrite can be completed in just a few minutes….view full report
