Police crime logs now available for all

The Half Moon Bay Police Department has today started posting its summarized crime reports online as a way to make information more readily available to the public.

The police department compiles the crime log daily and plans to post it immediately on the police section of the city’s website, Web Link.

The crime summary will be available with no suspect names redacted. That means every crime, from a misdemeanor DUI to a felony assault, will include the suspect’s name, age and hometown (except for juveniles).

Traffic citations are not usually included in the crime log.


Will that include any of the cases which will be brought up for crimes committed outside of HALF MOON BAY?

Do El Granada, Princeton, Moss Beach, and Montara have to put up with the same recorded logs?

WHO does patrol and watch each of these counties?

When ambulances, Sheriff's cars, and fire trucks arrive for an incident, who controls the expenditures even if it is a minor accident yet bringing the entire armada?

I admire and thank Mark Noack for alerting us to an important new procedure at the Half Moon Bay Police Department which is now printing at their web site each day"daily case activity" including names of adult arrestees; a new-knowledge procedure that certainly helps protect neighbors against the unexpected (until now) danger that lives right next door, or across the street.

Noack gave us one web link, but this one here cuts out a couple of steps.

Web Link

if you paste the url to your address bar as many must do, that address for you to paste is:


The following few excerpts from the Monday, June 15th. HMB Police log cannot show the professional easy to read .PDF report provided to you by the Police Dept. at the web links. The info you see below is to encourage you to please be aware of, and use this valuable new resource Mark Noack has called to our attention.

That's great to know. Much better than the "Police Log" in the Review. Now if only we could get better coverage of sheriff activity in the unincorporated areas!

There sure are a lot of people driving fast, without licenses or insurance. Hmm, and these are the same people who say they will voluntarily appear in court. I must admit, I am skeptical.

I went to traffic court once about 10 years ago - maybe things are different now - but many people appeared in court because they had no license, insurance or registration. They were told to obtain the missing item and given a new court date. I wonder how many actually did obtain license, insurance or registration in the end?

Muriel... regarding your information just above... if the cited defendant does not show for the new court date with the required documents in order and in hand, the Court Clerk (meaning her staff) will send notice to DMV to suspend or revoke the driving license.

For the court to do otherwise, would involve a huge crush of defendant-mishandled pending cases with the Court allowing its rules to be ignored. There are already enough pendings.

The Court will not be ignored. Serious items also sometimes bring the issue of an arrest warrant.
