One thought on “Police Blotter 2.9.11

  1. “An Emerald Tree Care foreman made a report claiming that someone was taking pictures of him and his workers… Patrol told the foreman to call dispatch again if the man returned”


    The correct action would have been:

    Foreman: A man is taking photos of us.
    Dispatcher: Is that all he’s doing?
    Foreman: Yes.
    Dispatcher: This is still a free country, it’s not a crime to take photographs. Please call back if there is a problem, but ‘taking photographs’ is not a police matter…
