Editor, thank you for restoring Police Blotter, but I too would want more complete reporting, as is done by Marinscope/Novato Advance.

Thank you for your feedback. I will include more calls each day. Some are of a medical nature, many are audible alarms or too many calls where a verbal assistance to neighbors is given and advice to citizens, some are where the call doesn't result in anything other than disturbance GOA - gone on arrival. I do not include these. Since there is interest, I will include some of the mundane calls starting next week.
