The City of Ithaca has a new interactive Community Dashboard that tracks calls received by the Ithaca Police Department.
“This is an interactive dashboard that allows members of the public to gain a better understanding of the types and volume of calls that IPD responds to,” said Acting IPD Chief John Joly in a statement.
IPD dashboard data
The dashboard includes three sections: The reported call type, the observed call type and the response location.
According to IPD data, there have been more than 8,000 calls made thus far in 2022 with 324 of those ending in arrests, or 3.6 times per 100 calls.
Interestingly, the data shows there have been 86 ‘butt-dialed’ calls to 911 since the beginning of 2022.
Chief Joly welcomes community feedback
The dashboard also shows “the locations and frequency of responses, the average number of officers deployed, and the average number of assigned calls per shift per day,” said Joly, adding that the data is updated weekly.
