Request for help…

With 25,000 hits in 7 months, this blog has clearly become a useful resource.
I would like to invite readers of this blog to help me and those seeking information on the Spokane Police and other issues related to Spokane-area law enforcement.
1) If you conduct a search on a relevant topic, please send me the link or links. Even the series of words you used in a Google search or the link to that search is useful.
2) If you have an experience or know of someone who has been a victim of abuse, disrespect, or other mistreatment by the police, jails, courts or other “public safety” personnel in the area, please send my the information.
3) If you have written something you would like posted here, please send it to me.
It is helpful if I have a way to reach you but it is not necessary. With an email address at least I can write you back for clarification. I will not publish or use your e-mail, name or personal information unless you request it and give your permission.
Please write to me at SpokanePoliceAbuses@gmail.com
