Post image for Police logs (9/9-9/14; and a look back at 8/19-8/23)

Police have released logs for September 9th – 14th. And I realized that I never shared logs released the week I took off in August. (Scroll down for those.)

[Editor’s Note: By law, the police logs omit domestic disturbances, including related arrests. (Which means police can be even busier than they appear to be.)

By blog policy, I strip out the names of any individuals listed as arrested.]

Are there no logs from 8/24 – 9/8? I’ve been watching for this because I want to look something up from 8/28.

2 beth September 23, 2016 at 4:23 PM

No. But, you can always reach out to the SPD if you have a question about something. With a few legal exceptions, the logs are public information. The problem is that the department doesn’t always have the time to type them up.

I suspect they leave out more than just issues involving domestic disturbances. I know a town resident who was arrested and charged with OUI on 9/10 and this incident does not appear in the published Police logs.

4 beth September 26, 2016 at 4:42 PM

They do include OUIs. Could the arrest have been made by state police or another town?

5 beth September 27, 2016 at 10:12 AM

According to Chief Paulhus, there were no arrests by Southborough Police between 9/9 and 9/11 for an OUI.
