I miss the details that were in the previous format of the Blotter Reports.

I hear you. The way I understand it is the PD's records-management system doesn't work with Hennepin County's computer-aided dispatch system. So the details I used to get would have to be typed in manually. A new records-management system should be up at the beginning of October. So I'm waiting to see if there are any changes then.
