I'm liking the local police blotter. This is way more relevant.

Thanks for the feedback, Mike. Now you'll get the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police blotter and a local sheriff's blotter with only Los Gatos and Saratoga arrests! The number of Los Gatos arrests on the sheriff's report is much lower than the town's report because most of the crime in LG is handled by its own PD, which is not the case with Saratoga, which is patrolled by the sheriff's. Hope this makes sense. Thanks for reading and your constant support!

Oh, and the only way to get the sheriff's arrest info is by doing a Public Records Act request, waiting sometimes up to 10 days for the agency to comply and then physically driving to sheriff's HQ office in downtown SJ and picking it up every week and paying for it! Thanks for Patch!

The local paper stopped printing the police blotter about 15 years ago. I was glad to see it go. A bit more information about locals that I didn't want to know. Not sure why we need to know this. Glad to see it gone from the Weekly and will be just as happy not to see it here.
