  1. I just got off the phone with Joel DeSpain, spokesperson for the Madison Police Department.
    He expalined that he posts incident reports when they come to his attentioin at daily detective briefings. This one didn’t come up, so he wasn’t aware of it.
    Additionally, he doesn’t post minor incidents, which occur almost daily he said.
    I asked whether the MMSD and police department have an agreement not to report incidents. He said no and that he’s never been cautioned to downplay school incidents.
