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.
