This man was arrested in April, freed on bail, and arraigned on September 12. He won't go to trial until December. Since he has been free in the community, I want to see his picture. I'd like to recognize him if I see him around my neighborhood. Surely there's a mug shot or a high school graduation picture.

Same goes for the Redwood City man arrested for stealing the car in PV. Help us protect our neighborhoods from suspected burglars.

Photos of suspects are sometimes included with press releases, but often they are not.

The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office did not include a photo of the Redwood City man arrested in connection with the theft of the car.

The same was true for the assault suspect from Palo Alto.

Yes, please include mug shots whenever possible!!! That way we community members can be on the lookout, and inform the authorities if we see any of these creeps.

@ Dave Boyce - are you able to request photos from the sheriff's office or PDs?

How about a yearbook picture of the 21 year old man from Mid-peninsula H.S.?
