The Police Beat

Welcome to The Freeport Police Station

Covering the police is one of the most important beats in daily journalism. Effective coverage relies on spending time both in the city and at the local police station or precinct headquarters.

In Freeport, the police department has a solid reputation as a responsible and efficient law enforcement agency. Reporters from the Freeport News have developed a good working relationship with the police department. Yet, they have maintained a healthy skepticism and are not afraid to ask the tough questions.

A police reporter usually begins the day by checking the police logs of arrests and crime reports. Then the reporter will use the police scanner, listening for codes that indicate major breaking stories, including crime, accidents or fires.
