Despite What You’ve Read, Police Incident Reports Are Available

By Dan Koller |

In today’s Dallas Morning News, there’s a story that says dallaspolice.net is still offline after being attacked by hackers. And this morning, police beat writer Scott Goldstein tweeted “Still no @DallasPD website this morning after weekend hacker attack that police won’t call a hacker attack.”

Yet this week’s editions of Park Cities People, Preston Hollow People, and Oak Cliff People – which went to press last night and will be delivered this afternoon – are chock full of crime news. How did this happen?

Well, ever-resourceful reporter Bradford Pearson figured out that the incident reports can be accessed if you bypass the home page and type in a slightly different URL: policereports.dallaspolice.net.

You’re welcome, Scott.
