Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)— Editor's Note: We continue our reporting on news from police reports.  Besides covering the many stories from around Park Forest that otherwise might go unnoticed, we want to bring more complete coverage of police reports than is reported by other local media.

An arrest does not mean that a person is guilty.  All those arrested are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  It is the policy of eNews Park Forest to not remove items in the public record from publication.  If your name is listed in the police reports, we will only add information relevant to the final disposition of the case at hand, e.g. "Mr. Smith was subsequently acquitted," or "All charges against Mr. Smith were subsequently dropped."  We will do so upon receiving and verifying proof of such disposition.

We will always include some introductory comments before the first item.  While everything that follows is a matter of public record, we do not believe it is necessary to have names on page one.
