August 20th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


After a Sunday morning filled with internet connectivity issues, thanks to a neighbor's tree taking down the service line to my home, the blog is back.

Sunday morning was mostly quiet, considering it was following the first Saturday night since the majority of students had moved back into town. A few alcohol violations, minor in possession, and open container violations, along with the usual indecent exposure citations for urinating in public. None of Sunday morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.

Also, I am sure the Journal-World will have more on Saturday night into Sunday morning's check lane and saturation patrol as soon as full results are made available from Law Enforcement.

As for this morning, things were almost abnormally calm throughout the county.

Lawrence Police responded on two disturbances. Officers also conducted four vehicle stops and cited numerous parking violations.

At 7:40 a.m., Police were called to an address in the 1700 block of Mississippi after receiving a report of an intoxicated female who had possibly forced her way into a residence. Officers arrived quickly and found a man and woman, both reported to be intoxicated, on a porch. The female was eventually taken into custody for trespassing and criminal damage to property. The criminal damage charge is believed to be related to damage done to a screen when the woman was making her entry into the residence.

None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.

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.

Some of the activity blogged above was reported as it was unfolding by Operation 100 News. Learn how to receive breaking news updates here.
