The following are incidents from the St. Albans Police Dept.’s weekly activity log. These incidents are previously unreported in the Messenger.

This reporting would be impossible without the generous cooperation of Lt. Benjamin Couture.

A technical issue prevented delayed publication of the SAPD’s weekly logs. The Messenger will continue running Behind the Badge on Thursdays, as always, after this week.

However, the result is the longest Behind the Badge we have published.

The SAPD responded to the below calls between Monday, Dec. 9 and Sunday, Sunday, Dec. 29.

Despite the incredible length of this week’s Behind the Badge, these weeks did not include a single report of loud music — a rarity.
