Ever wonder what the Ashland Police Department are up to on a day-to-day basis? Fortunately, they publish daily activity reports so we can get a sense.
The police department separates the city of Ashland into 5 precincts as depicted below. Each precinct is under the command of a Sergeant. If you have problems to report with your neighborhood, contact the Sergeant in charge.
Take a look at the map and find out what area you live in. Then take a look at the crime that has happened over a five day period by looking at this PDF from the Ashland Police Department.
What amazes me is there isn’t a single report of heroine or other hard drugs. There are lots of theft and burglary reports, which could ultimately be fueled by drug addiction, but still no arrests for possession. I don’t know if this is a result of how the crimes are recorded or if it says something about this community.
