The Hamlet Police Department’s 2018 statistics were presented during last week’s town council meeting. Council President Dave Kesvormas read through some of the numbers, “The general calls of service was 1,209. We had 50 accidents, 471 traffic stops, 75 citations. Adults arrested are 28, and assist to other agencies: 68, counting medical.”
Kesvormas also recognized the four reserve officers who volunteered a total of almost 1,300 hours over the course of 2018.
Council Member Brian Earnest added that the police department as a whole has a great relationship with the town, and residents seem to approve of the job police are doing. Earnest said Hamlet Police have done a great job over the past year at running things smoothly.
