The Journal-World does not print accounts of all police reports filed. The newspaper generally reports:
- Burglaries, only with a loss of $1,000 or more, unless there are unusual circumstances. To protect victims, we generally don't identify them by name.
- The names and circumstances of people arrested, only after they are charged.
- Assaults and batteries, only if major injuries are reported.
- Holdups and robberies.
