  1. was just wondering why you don’t put the streets where the police are going like you did

    • Stephanie Frehner says:

      With changes from the police report as they come in, we haven’t been putting the streets in due to time constraints. We may begin doing it again in the future, but for now, this is what we have.

  2. I agree with Mike, not very interesting report without details.
