The Danger Zone is the name of the Port City Sun crime reports. All information is pulled from the Stockton Police Department’s twice daily watch reports which you can sign up for at stocktongov.com/police or by following the Stockton Police Department on Facebook. These are not the complete reports, just the ones I find interesting. It’s a very scientific process.
