Seekonk Police Have Busy Month


December was a "busy month" for the Seekonk Police Department, according to Interim Police Chief David Enos.

The department answered or initiated 1, 502 calls of service, Enos said on the popular TV9 program, "Police Beat," which features a rundown of notable cases. Enos explained the majority of calls are of a "serious nature" such as assaults, burglaries, larcenies, and breaking and entering into motor vehicles.

The department also responds to "quality of life" issues including well-being checks, motor vehicle stops, and complaints about speeders and aggressive drivers.

The department's newly formed Traffic Enforcement Division has been responding to those complaints. Officer James Nelson, who is in charge of the division, wrote 53 citations in December.

Enos said 1, 455 incident reports were written in 2019. The department made 861 arrests and wrote 710 motor vehicle accident reports.

Police Beat runs at various times during the month on TV9.
