Posts in April: I will be out of the office the first two weeks of April, so you will not see daily posts from me from Friday, March 31 until the week of April 17th. If you want to track crime in your area, please refer to www.crimemapping.com or www.spotcrime.com, where you can check up on all crimes that resulted in police reports being written by APD. Tomorrow, March 31, 2017 will be my last post until I’m back in the office in mid-April.
