A police blotter is a daily record of incidents and calls for service that are handled by a police department. It is typically a listing of criminal activity and other incidents that have been reported to the police, along with the names of the people involved and the disposition of the case.

The purpose of a police blotter is to provide the public with a transparent view of the police department's activities and to increase accountability. It allows citizens to stay informed about crime and safety in their community and helps them to identify potential areas of concern. Additionally, it also serves as a record of police activity for use in criminal investigations and court cases. The information provided in a police blotter can also be used by community leaders, researchers and the media to identify trends and patterns in crime and to assess the effectiveness of policing strategies.
