  1. Hi, is there any possibility that you can investigate how we can get the police department to start publishing its police log, crime log, police blotter or whatever they want to call it? Nearby towns all have one and Wayland used to have one. I called the police dept and they referred me to an app they recommend which pushes out alerts. The app is worthless and is no substitute for a police log. I also emailed the town manager who forwarded my email to the Chief who then never answered me. Some towns have a newspaper like this one which publishes it. I dont care how we get it as long as we get an updated police log. thanks.
