Denver Police responded to a half-million calls in 2015

More people in Denver made 911 calls to check on other people, than almost every other type of emergency call, proving there is still some faith in humanity.

Denver Police were dispatched to more than 531,594 calls in 2015. They tweeted out the information on Tuesday, and we here at Next were curious what those calls were for.

The number is a combination of 911 calls and officer-initiated calls. More than 25,000 of those calls were "welfare checks" -- second only to minor car accident calls, at 28,456, all of which were non-injury.

Denver Police were dispatched to 51 animal bite/attack calls from January 2015 to December 2015, and more than 12,000 domestic violence incidents 

And, in case you were wondering, officers were dispatched to 1,300 indecent exposure calls, which equals a lot of naked people.

We e-mailed Denver Police to see how the number of calls for service in 2015 compares to years past, but we haven’t heard back yet.
