July 13th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Some storms rolled through the area early last night. One of which decided that I needed to take a break from most of my scanners. I was among the thousands of KCP&L Customers in Johnson County that lost electricity around 9 p.m. The outage knocked me down to only my two handheld scanners that run on battery power. So I was still able to monitor LDCFM. My outage lasted until about 11:40 p.m.

LDCFM was pretty quiet after 10:30 p.m. when I started listening. Lawrence Fire units did respond on several reports of power line When my electricity was restored, I started monitoring Douglas County Law Enforcement, which was also surprisingly quiet.

LPD responded on several burglary alarms, most of which seemed to be related to the weather. Police also responded on several burglaries, including one around 4:30 a.m. at Walgreens that involved an unknown subject taking a woman's purse from her car in the parking lot.

Again, 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.
