Why are address numbers no longer in the police log? Now I have no idea where things occurred on the major streets.

YOUR RIGHT IT SHOULD SHOW SO PEOPLE KNOW JUST WERE ITS TAKEN PLACE SO NEIGHBORS CAN WATCH ONE ANOTHERS HOUSES. IF IT DOSEN'T SHOW AN ADDRESS WE HAVE NO IDEA, I'M WITH YOO.

Hey Josh—I don't include specific address numbers to protect victims' privacy, but your point is taken. In the future, I'll try to include at least a block range (such as the 700 block of Main Street or the like) on major streets.

Great. BTW, Patch's inclusion of a map for most articles showing where things occurred is something I wish all news websites had. And here's it's plotting several items. Love it.
