Buffalo Police Chief Jason Carder gave his monthly report to the city council at their last meeting, saying there were 1,346 incidents handled by his officers during the month of May.
Dispatch reported 3,340 phone calls during the month.
Animal Control responded to four calls in the county, which will be billed $200 for the calls.
The BPD performed Tobacco Compliance Checks on May 23. Of the 16 businesses checked, Big Horn Co-op and the Red Eagle sold to a minor.
Carder also said the department is in the final stages of hiring a new officer. The candidate has seven years' experience as an officer, which will save time getting him on the street as a patrol officer as he will not have to go through Police Academy training.
Carder requested that the council approve his request to start this new officer's pay at $21.69 per hour because of his experience. The salary is more than $2 an hour more than the regular starting pay for a patrol officer.
The council made the approval of the salary bump conditional of passing a background check, polygraph test and physical. The candidate has already passed the psychological test.
