The Mandan Police Department has released its annual report on the overall view of police activity throughout the city in 2020.
The report is broken into nine major areas that include the following categories:
- Calls for Service (CFS)
- Crime Statistics Comparison
- Animal Control
- Trafficand Parking
- Juvenile Offenses
- Community Services
- Code Enforcement
- Fines/Fees Collected
Some key findings in the report:
Mandan PD says there was a slight decline in calls for service, which may have occurred due to mandates and restrictions put in place by Federal, State and Local government policies.
In 2020, Mandan police responded to 14,459 CFS, which is down 3% from 2019 CFS.
The four-year average for CFS is 14,855 calls per year. The data collected during 2020 does illustrate that CFS was 3% lower than the four-year CFS average.
Data indicates that during the winter months CFS are typically lower than the warmer months, and this has been consistent over the past four years.

Reported burglaries increased 34% from 2019 to 2020 and are up 20% over the past three year’s average
