This beat entails doing the Police Blotter every week as well as covering any trends that might arise in local crime.

For Police Blotter, you’re going to want to contact local police departments such as Rochester and Auburn Hills, explain what you’re doing and see if you can get them to send you weekly crime logs. You’re going to want to make this request through Public Affairs or the Records Department. Once you get the logs, write about the most interesting reports.
