We have lost our Police Reports for Ladera. They are not included in the Portola Valley reports, even though we share a zip code. We would really like to know what problems are going on in our neighborhood.

Thanks (again.)

Ladera is still covered in the police reports, but if the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office has no crimes to report as having happened in Ladera over the previous week, the Almanac will be silent as to Ladera.
