Recent call logs from the local police.
Note: Some violent crimes have been labeled as medical assist. Many ask why we post them. The answer is simple, police label violent crimes as medical assist in their call logs, and as long as they continue to do so, we will continue to post them.
Also, the recent murder next to the Rockford Police Station District 1 was labeled as a service to other agency non specific. Instead of an aggravated battery. We might start to post those as well since they have begun labeling violent crimes under this topic as well.
