CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) – The Cranston Police Department is now publishing its daily arrest log on its website.
The goal is to streamline information sharing between police and the public and members of the media.
If further information is requested regarding a particular arrest, an official request as set forth by the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act is required.
All previous practices regarding the release of arrest log activity will be discontinued and now provided through the department’s website.
Cranston Police will continue to periodically publish Media Releases regarding an event or incident when deemed appropriate.
The Department anticipates this practice will be more convenient for the public and all media outlets.
