Victoria Police had their hands full on Monday night, responding to 80 calls between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m.
On a similar Monday night just one month prior, on April 2, police only responded to 62 calls for service.
“We typically see an increase as summer time approaches,” said Victoria Police Department media spokesperson Const. Matt Rutherford.
However, the calls received Monday night almost surpassed the 82 calls received on St. Patrick’s Day.w
Calls included everything from fights to robberies and car accidents, as well as several false or abandoned calls.
“It’s stretching our resources thin,” Rutherford said. “That night officers were going call to call to call without any breaks.”
