The Joplin community has been heard and Joplin Police Department incident reports returned as of about three hours ago.
After City Manager Sam Anselm stopped the incident spotlights the community, which had learned a considerable amount about how the JPD operates and what officers have to deal with on a day-to-day basis, immediately began a petition signed by more than 5,000 people to have the reports returned.
The reports will follow the new "be kind" motto City Manager Sam Anselm put in his new guidelines.
