Most others were for civil service, protection from abuse orders, welfare checks, trespass complaints, custody disputes, domestic disturbances, a juvenile in crisis, and other family-related issues. Multiple burglar alarm calls were responded to, as well as assists to other agencies. There were several pre-employment background checks.
