In February 2014, the Perrysburg Township Police Department began using AlertPSS software for reporting. Some categories are recorded differently with the new software. For example, in the past “miscellaneous police activity” included, but was not limited to, such activity as custody exchanges, BOLOs, teletypes, and traffic activities (from CedarCreek Church and Penta). The new software does not include these activities for recording purposes. Though it may seem that there was a drop in miscellaneous police action from January to February and onward, this decrease in number is due to the categorical difference and not an actual policy activity drop.
