It was a busy night if you were a police officer yesterday, as Victoria police reported an incredible 80 calls for service between 5 p.m. Monday evening and 5 a.m. Tuesday morning.

For comparison’s sake, VicPD responded to 82 calls on St. Patrick’s Day this year—on a Saturday.

Of the 80 calls for service, 11 were for fighting, nine were for missing persons, three were for robberies, and one was for an overdose.

VicPD reported that there were another 13 calls waiting to be dispatched as dayshift members started on Tuesday morning.

All that, and there wasn’t even a full moon. Is there something in the water we don’t know about?

Actually, VicPD says it might just be the weather.

Let’s hope the rest of the week settles down a little!
