On Saturday September 6, 2014 we became aware of a glitch between our Records Management System and our Police Blotter resulting from a recent software upgrade. This prevented the blotter from making automatic updates. Upon discovering the issue, it was immediately corrected and all the missing data is now current and viewable. If you have any questions or ever experience issues with our Police blotter in the future, please bring it to our attention by contacting our Records Section at (561) 297-3500
