No names? The previous editor provided names. •At 5:28 p.m., a male was given a bylaw citation on Main Street for the possession of under one ounce of marijuana. •At 7:26 p.m., as the result of a motor vehicle stop a Reading female was summonsed for operating with a revoked registration and operating an unregistered motor vehicle.

No, Tom, no names for non-arrests, such as a summons to appear in court or a civil citation, such as appear above. That was also our policy when Matt was the editor of Reading Patch. If you have further questions, I'll gladly answer them: You can email me at danield@patch.com

Daniel you have not followed your own policy multiple times then. I could point out at least 2 instances (and couple probably find several more) where Patch has included a name for someone accused of the civil violation of possessing under one ounce of marijuana. You either need much better editorial control over you articles or you need to change your policy.
Daniel DeMaina (Editor) October 18, 2012 at 01:34 AM
Thanks for the feedback Matt. If you have those instances at the ready, please feel free to email them to me at danield@patch.com. I'd also be glad to discuss over email our editorial control, how that's enforced throughout the region I oversee and so forth.
