Police blotter: Short on detail, for now


The Bainbridge Island Police Department has a new policy of withholding narrative descriptions from incident reports made available to the press. This means the week’s blotter has far fewer details than the blotters of years past. For more information on the department’s disclosure policies, and the Kitsap Sun’s efforts for greater transparency, see the above post.
