The non-notable incidents are funnier.

The photo of police cars from another jurisdiction is symptomatic of the regionalization of Patch. Is there a good reason not to use photos of Albany Police cars? I would be happy to take a photo and send it to Patch if necessary. Who determines what is considered a "notable call"?

Thanks for pointing out that error, Peggy. I replaced the picture. Notable calls for service are calls for more significant incidents, which in the case case of this post, the Patch staffer determines.

I won't be eager to click on this feature again if it ain't entertaining.
