WALKER - Sheriff Randy Fisher reported Tuesday to the Cass County Board that calls for service in the county dropped from 21,207 in 2006 to 18,664 in 2007.
While calls for service have risen and fallen over the last 14 years, Fisher said this is the largest single year drop during that time. The largest single year increase was from 15,990 in 2005 to 21,207 in 2006.
Thirteen townships and cities saw increased calls in 2007, but most were slight, compared with 2006. The single most significant 2007 increase was in Hackensack where a new police officer went on duty in 2007. Hackensack's calls rose from 224 in 2006 to 521 in 2007.
The most significant declines were noted in other cities and the townships of May, Pike Bay, Pine River, Shingobee and Sylvan.
