Wise police chief wants to be able to alert businesses about crime via fax

According to this story in the Coalfield Progress, the police chief in Wise wants local businesses to have fax machines so he can send them reports about crimes that might affect them.

The Chief "said the police department is preparing to implement a program through which the department will alert area businesses to activities, such as counterfeiting, bad checks, scams and shoplifting, while those crimes are in progress in the area." Of course, e-mail would be cheaper and better than fax, but what do I know?
