Great work Officer Jordan! Low crime rates and a great educational system are key components in making Cranford such a great town to live in!

I find it gross that you name the people who were arrested, maybe they have a problem, but if it was you would you enjoy all the negative attention you'd get from an article like this and many others? not everyone is the crazy drug lord you people are soo afraid of, most are normal individuals with normal lives who may have messed up but dont deserve to be ridiculed on a dumb town website stick to more important issues like where all the money in this town goes or how crappy flood plans are you know? so weird anal overreacting middle aged people can feel good about themselves for not doing something wrong in an overwhelmingly clean cut town
