SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department receives hundreds of calls for service each day. Not all calls result in a report or arrest. Compiled by Watch Commanders in the field, the Watch Log is a summary of events that stand out to them in a given 24-hour period. Call times listed are approximate and typically reflect the first call received by SLC911 (Dispatch) for a given case. Items contained herein are based on information available at the time of its release and should not be interpreted as an admission or finding of guilt.

Traffic accident
350 W. Hope Ave.
14-199184

A 31-year-old female and her 15-year-old daughter were exiting the upper parking lot of Walmart when their car slid on the icy ramp and collided with the concrete side rail. The rail broke and the car rolled off the edge and landed on its side. Both victims were transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Weather related traffic accidents

Officers responded to dozens of traffic accidents due to icy roads. With the changing of the seasons, motorists are asked to be mindful of the need to adjust speed and stopping distance based on weather and road conditions. Please resist the temptation to leave idling vehicles unattended—it just creates a job opportunity for would-be car thieves and it’s against the law. A city ordinance enacted in 2011 also prohibits the idling of vehicles within city limits for more than two minutes, although there is an exemption when temperatures drop below 32° Fahrenheit. Parking Enforcement, part of Salt Lake City Public Services Compliance Division, enforces this ordinance.
