  1. Will you continue to publish the Scottsdale AZ Police Department Weekly Arrest Report after the date 4-30-2019?

    The Scottsdale PD website that has the weekly arrest list on it indicates it will not be produced after the date 4-30-19.

    Please advise if you will continue to post it after 4-30-2019.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi, Pat, thanks for your interest.

      I was not aware of this change. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

      Like with most changes like this, I suspect the rationale does NOT include transparency and ease of access for the taxpayers.

      I followed the link that seemed to indicate an alternative path to the data, but that portal doesn’t seem to work with Safari. Typical.

      Every such ‘upgrade’ I’ve seen in the last 15 years has resulted in further hindering access to what should be open access to public records. The searchability of the city website went from marginal to abysmal, with no thought to preserving links.

      I have to believe a lot of that was intentional.

      And since I’ve been a frequent critic of city policies which have driven up arrest volumes, it doesn’t take too much imagination to think eliminating the weekly report makes that criticism more difficult.
