Is Pleasanton Police Hiding Crime Statistics?

Original post made by Wondering on Apr 10, 2013

Why does the Pleasanton Police no longer update the city's website Police Blotter?

The Police web site here Web Link shows incidents from mid-February. Why is it so out of date?

Are they trying to hide crime statistics? Also why is there only a 2011 annual report on the web? Where is the 2012 report?

Why don't you call up the Pleasanton Police and ask them?

There's a big difference between requiring accountability from our public employees and being ungrateful. Requiring that public employees account for what they do, how they do it is not only a good idea, it's the fiscally and socially responsible thing to do.

The fact that we expect accountability from someone doesn't mean we don't appreciate the work they do or that we don't respect the challenges and sometimes dangers of the job.

To demand that we should "shut up" and trust that they are doing an "EXCELLENT" job, to state that we are "UNGRATEFUL" because we expect accountability for services that we pay for is foolish and lazy.

Personally, I doubt there is any intentional hiding of facts, however I could believe that some public agencies give a low priority to keeping the public informed of their operations. If that were true, I we'd have a right to be upset. Keeping us informed and working in a transparent manner are critical to maintaining the public trust.

Don't be a sheeple- it's not disrespectful to ask questions and demand information.

All you need to do is read the papers how many lawsuits are ongoing? How many officers are being investigated? I think the Pleasanton PD is long past due for a MUCH NEEDED HOUSE CLEANING
