Bee launches arrest database

By Phillip Reese

The “police blotter” — the daily or weekly listings of who’s been arrested for what in local communities — is an old newspaper tradition. It’s fallen out of favor lately as growth makes the sheer number of arrests in places like Sacramento County impossible to print without dropping a huge brick of a newspaper on readers’ doorsteps every week.

The internet changes that. Now, for all Sacramento County arrests in 2008, The Bee is now providing this information online. You can search our database by a suspect’s name, a home street, type of crime or other criteria.

This electronic police log will be updated monthly.
