For the Record – March 27, 2017

Editor’s Note:

After careful consideration and speaking with members of our readership, the Pen City Current will now begin listing citations as citations and not arrests. Although the report from the Fort Madison Police is an “Adult Arrest Log” and lists “Arrest time”, “Location of Arrest” and “Arrest Disposition” the term arrest does have a connotation of being detained by law enforcement in some form or another. For example, several weeks ago we listed high school as being arrested when she received a citation by the police for being involved in an accident, but she was not detained by police. She received a citation and was released. And although we believe this is by definition an arrest with a personal release, it does to the reader seem as though they were detained. We believe this could be confusing but we want to be reactive to our readership when we it’s possible and we strive to paint the clearest picture of our community and its residents. Going forward, to be listed as arrested the person listed in the log will have had to have been at a minimum taken to the Lee County Jail.
