Good morning, everyone. It's 12:05am. I wasn't planning making a post until around 2pm today, but due to the shooting that just happened about 15 minutes ago, I decided to make a post. I will be monitoring for the next hour or two before I head to bed, then I probably won't come back until around 2pm today unless something arises from the shooting tonight. Here is crime for today.

I think your blog is great! Keep up the good work. I was browsing through old posts and came across the phrase "slow down was given for such-and-such address..." several times. Do you know what giving a "slow down" means?

First off, thanks for the complient :-). I enjoy informing everyone of what's happening. Second, the phrase "slow down" means that responding officers don't need to come so fast. They can drive at the regular speed.
