Ishpeming Police Department Activity Reports


From January 1, 2019 through January 31, 2019, the Ishpeming Police Department answered 464 Calls for Service (CFS) which compares to 451 CFS’s for the same period in 2018.

Ishpeming Police Department arrests for January 2019 were at 18 compared to 12 in January 2018.

In January of 2019, the Marquette County Prosecutors Office released the Domestic Incident Data for January 1, 2018 through June 30th 2018.

The report compares agencies related to Domestic Violence complaints.

During the reporting period a total of 164 warrants were requested by agencies in Marquette County.  Of the 164 warrants requested, 54 were from the Ishpeming Police Department (1/3 of all requested in Marquette County).

After Ishpeming P.D’s 54, Marquette PD and the Michigan State Police were tied for second with 32 requests each.  Then Forsyth Township PD with 22, Sherriff’s Office with 15, then Negaunee PD with 5.

These numbers show how many domestic complaints our officer’s answer where an “assault” has taken place.  The true number of Domestic Complaints is at least double this number and it has been document that a Domestic Complaint are one of the most dangerous complaints a police officer can answer.

On a positive note, we now have over 700 followers on our Facebook Page, which has only been up for a couple of months.

February 2019

From February 1, 2019 through February 28, 2019, the Ishpeming Police Department answered 410 Calls for Service (CFS) which compares to 461 CFS’s for the same period in 2018.   Our year to date CFS are at 877 compared to 912 for the same period in 2018.

Ishpeming Police Department arrests for February 2019 were at 23 compared to 40 in February 2018.  The year to date arrest totals are at 66 compared to 80 for the same period in 2018.

In February we lost three officers to other Marquette County Agencies.  We are actively looking for replacements.  In the mean time we have had to make some major changes in our schedule to maintain a 24/7/365 operation and to continue to fulfill police department commitments.
