Can you please tell me why you do not release the peoples names who have been arrested for the crimes listed above? Once they are placed under arrest isn't it available to the public? We would like to know if these people are our neighbors!!!

Francis, being arrested doesn't make a person guilty.
Francis Soyer January 16, 2013 at 01:29 PM
Did not say they were convicted, but the major news paper in this city releases names of people who have been arrested for crimes that they have yet to appear in cour for, it is public record. Not sure why this one does not????

Thank you for your question, Francis. We release more information about suspects once charges are filed through the courts systems. If you hover over the 'news' tab at the top and click 'Police & Fire,' you can navigate through our previous stories. Many of those include more information about charges and suspects. Please let me know if you have any questions.
