You're welcome :-). It's my pleasure to inform everyone of crime so something could be done about it.

Anonymous said...

Would you please do a post sometime deciphering the lingo/codes you use, such as "coded 19Paul," "event number," "TBD," etc. It would be a helpful reference.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

I don't know what the codes mean either, but I can make a guess. Codes like 19Paul mean that there was no police report made or incident. TBD is something related to traffic laws. Event number is probably just some kind of statisic stuff.
