Bishop-Jones reported 17 domestic violence cases, five sexual assault/rape cases, 7 harassment/stalking cases and two other violence reports for September.

A total of 22 females and eight males, including children, were served.

So far this year, April and June have had the largest number of cases reported for the year at 55, followed by 52 in February, 47 in January, 46 in May, 45 cases in March, 44 for July and August and 30 for September.

"This breakdown of calls may help the public understand more readily why it takes longer on some occasions for deputies to respond to calls and what kinds of calls they answer during a shift," DeLay said.
