The Coconino County Sheriff's Office received 513 calls for service this Labor Day Weekend, almost double the number from the previous weekend.
Over the last four-day holiday weekend, that being Memorial Day, the Sheriff’s Office received 455 calls and 350 calls the weekend before Memorial Day. While last Friday through Monday, the Sheriff's Office received 383 calls.
The majority of the calls were made up of 46 disturbing the peace complaints and 46 regarding motorist and public assists. Several of those public assists came from the Coconino County Fair, including 5 for lost children.
There were nine search and rescue requests, 83 traffic stops, and 11 traffic collisions. One of the search and rescue requests pertained to a woman who was eventually rescued but was stuck in quicksand in the Paria Canyon near Big Springs for a day.
"The Sheriff’s Office thanks all those individuals and other public safety agencies that assisted with responses during this holiday weekend and in helping to keep our community safe," said Coconino County Sheriff's Office spokesperson, Erica Wiltenmuth.
