August 17th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


With more and more students moving back into the area everyday, that calls have not really changed to much for Lawrence Police.

Lawrence Police were kept busy in the immediate area of Lawrence Memorial Hospital overnight. There was a subject making suicidal statements after just being released from the facility. That subject was taken back to the hospital. Police also responded to the hospital on a disturbance and then a few hours later a subject in the emergency room being uncooperative with staff, after being admitted and taken to a room.

Police have received a few more alcohol complaints, nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year in Lawrence though.

KU Public Safety Officers started seeing an increase in activity this morning about 6:30 a.m. as more students were preparing to move into the dorms. Several of their calls involved drivers striking parked cars.

Most of the overnight hours consisted of the fairly normal calls, disturbances, vehicle stops and noise complaints.

The activity blogged here is only a sampling of some of the things that Douglas County Law Enforcement and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical respond on. To see a complete list of Lawrence Police activity, the department has that available on their website along with several easy to use maps that show approximate locations for Police activity.

I wish. The article says "nothing out of the ordinary for this time of you in Lawrence." This time of you does have a lot of drunks posting on LJWorld.

The dorms don't open 'til Friday, why are kids out hitting parked cars at 6:30AM?
