What Am I Missing?

From WPD on the Record:

There have been numerous break-ins in the Northeast sector of the city along with the area around Chandler Street and Mill Street.

If you look at the area around Chandler Street and Mill Street for the past fourteen days on crimereports.com, you see:

If you look a little further down in the map, you see:

The “B”s are Breaking and Entering incidents.

Now, I don’t mean to nitpick, but the area affected seems to be less Mill and Chandler Streets and more June and Chandler Streets.

The WPD definitely gets a solid B for effort in their endeavors on Facebook, but they need to remember that some people may rely on their communications — whether they are on Facebook or on CrimeReports.

In this case, either CrimeReports is not showing all the B&Es (and the press release is accurate) or the press release isn’t accurate.

If the B&Es are significant enough to be noted, they should be significant enough to be reported accurately.
