South Bend Police Department discusses community crime statistics for November 2023

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The South Bend Police Department discussed their crime statistics in the city for November 2023, showing minimal changes in shots fired/calls for service from last month. 

In last month's crime stats meeting, officials discussed a significant spike in calls for shots fired for October 2023, an issue they had hoped to address with a now fully staffed department and by putting more officers on the streets. 

The month-to-month statistics show the number slightly decreasing from 125 calls for shots fired in October to 124 in November, though not all calls are confirmed shootings.
