The New Orleans Police Department said it will start giving modified crime reports to a French Quarter blogger and to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. The reports will exclude the names of victims and witnesses and may contain a less detailed narrative of each incident. The department had been giving detailed reports to the blogger for one precinct but revised its policy when the Times-Picayune filed a request for similar reports citywide. (1/14/08)
