RE: [MPD-5D] Re: shots on Douglas between 10th and 12th
MessageI second that. When someone asks a question of the police on this listserv, it needs to get answered on this listserv in a timely manner - even if the answer is "we cannot comment right now because it is still under investigation" or "I don't know, but I will look into this and respond within 24 hours."Not only do they post daily arrest reports on the 4D listserv, but Commander Burton often directly answers questions himself - the fact that his is an active participant on the listserv gives an example to other officers in 4D to also respond in a timely manner, as I am sure that if he saw this complaint on the 4D listserv, he would make sure that a.) the original question was answered immediately and b.) make sure that it does not happen again.This listserv is suppose to increase communication between the community and the police. If the police do not respond to citizen questions, what good is it?Thank you.Toby-----Original Message-----Hello?

Subject: [MPD-5D] Re: shots on Douglas between 10th and 12th
I am becoming more and more disenchanted with the lack of information being provided
on this listserv. My neighbors have twice asked for information here on shootings so that
we don't have to rely on neighborhood gossip. This has happened too often in the past:
we ask for information on the listserv, get no response, then wait until the PSA meeting to
ask in person, where officers tell us they will get back to us and never do. Please respond
on the listserv or send prepared and knowledgeable officers to the PSA meetings.
It's come to my attention that 4D officers posts brief police crime stats when crimes
occur-- can we please have something like this on this listserv? The crime section in the
Post is not complete and we are currently not getting adequate information.
(10th and Douglas)
