Missing cat’s name is redacted in police log


The Portsmouth Police Department has a strange habit of blacking out names of missing pets. In February, the cops redacted a dog’s name – I called and learned her name is Amber – and this week the department shielded the name of a missing cat. I’ve asked Sgt. Chris Roth to explain why.
