The Police Log is interesting, but it seems like every time I log into the patch the log is the featured story. This doesn't make Wakefield look very good. Let's see something else.

The people of Wakefield, especially those with young children or the elderly unable to take any other protective measures but to arm themselves with information, have the right to be informed of crime. If the best place to place it is the featured story, then so be it.
