Do the burglars take Pay-Pal? Maybe the Patch can get one of it's advertisers to subsidize a better blotter. This feature is one of the most important community services this paper can provide

I agree, expanded content.here is essential. Saying "hears a teaser we will get you more later" is popppycock like commercials for.the.11 o'clock news. Please bring back the original format, the one with information.

I believe the original format was the product of someone who worked for the Police Dept. who no longer works there; it was someone who took extra time to expand the reports and when she? or he retired, no one else was available to take up the slack. Expansion would be great, I agree, but the original was not a Patch default.

Here's more information on the break-ins: http://patch.com/A-z2Rm Also, this log's format is done in order to get readers information quickly. The expanded log requires me to go to the police department and record calls for service there at the station. Depending on the number of calls, it can be very time consuming. I'm not able to do it as often as I'd like, but I will do my best to post an expanded version of the log asap. For now, this (preview) post is meant to provide a snapshot of crime in your community. It's not meant to be a tease or anything else. In any case, I appreciate the constructive feedback.

Sounds like juveniles again. With all due respect, the abbreviated reports are analogous to a physician's scheduling surgery without explanation. The Why, Who and How are important to our community for taking preventive safety measures. Our security system is connected to the police and fire departments. We had it installed after a neighbor's house was burglarized, despite the fact that he had left tools and a ladder in his back yard, facilitating the deed. Peace of mind is priceless. Missing you, Emilie.
