Mostly empty streets greet Modesto officers on Christmas Day

Sixteen Modesto police officers worked the day shift Wednesday on what is often one of the quietest days of the year for law enforcement – Christmas. With many people at home celebrating the holiday and nearly all businesses closed, these officers were on track by early afternoon to handle about half of the 120 to 180 calls patrol officers typically respond to during the 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. day shift. But many of the calls officers responded to involved family disputes.
