The reports were logged in the week after consecutive weekends that were also busy. The Park City Kimball Arts Festival and the Tour of Utah bicycling race, held on back-to-back weekends, brought large crowds to Park City.
Phil Kirk, a police captain, attributed the busy week to the fast-approaching end of summer, noting that the school year starts soon. He said none of the cases were serious.
"We were at high call volume, kept officers busy," Kirk said.
