CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- The Clarkstown Police Department reported handling more than 600 calls during the last week of July.
Of those investigations or arrests nine involved drugs or alcohol.
These were the other categories, and the number of calls: arson/vandalism/criminal mischief, one; assault, five; domestic incidents, 17; emotionally disturbed persons, 11; frauds and thefts, 27; medical emergencies, 117; traffic accidents, 52; and weapons violations, two.
The number of calls that didn’t fall under these categories amount to 430, police said.
Clarkstown, the largest Police Department in the county, has its headquarters in New City and precinct substations in Nanuet and West Nyack.
It has been in the news lately because of the controversy surrounding its chief, Michael Sullivan.
According to a report by lohud.com, Sullivan was suspended in July for, his lawyer said, failing to reassign a sergeant after being asked to by the town supervisor and for comments made on social media about a legal case involving a former police officer.
Sullivan faces disciplinary charges of misconduct and incompetence, the lohud.com story said.
Capt. Robert Mahon was appointed to take over for Sullivan.
