of the information provided, including the most recent six week lapse. But
the second, and our most critical concern, is the lack of any substantive
informational content of the log. Other than names and charges when an
actual arrest is made, there is virtually no incident information provided
for what any of the entries concern. We do not feel the log, in it's past
form, purposefully or adequately informed the public of local criminal and

Thanks for your input. I do
understand to a point what you’re saying. As you say, it is a valuable
resource for informing our community of local criminal activity. But only
