Bend Police Chief Says Calls For Service At Same Rate As Pre-Pandemic

BEND, OR -- Bend Police Chief Mike Krantz says they track Calls For Service and despite the pandemic, 9-1-1 Calls and Non-Emergency Calls are consistent with the numbers  the last 2 years. However, Krantz says Officer Initiated Calls have seen a drop of almost half but that’s because officers are told think twice before getting out and engaging somebody unless it is a public or life safety issue. He says the Bend Police have not experienced outbreaks of the virus although a few officers have tested positive who then quarantine as told by their doctor.
