Evanston police once issued a detailed crime bulletin each weekday, from Monday to Friday, except for city holidays.
About a year ago, it was reduced to four days a week, with none on Wednesday.
Starting this month it has been further reduced to three days a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Cmdr. Ryan Glew, the department’s public information officer, says the change will provide greater efficiency for the department.
Under state law all police departments are required to released details about arrests, which make up a portion of the bulletin, within 72 hours of when an arrest takes place.
So here are the items in Wednesday’s bulletin:
