10 http://www.cranstonpoliceri.com/ From the city site, you need to go to the police site. If you follow the links for contacting that department on the city’s site, you first to a page of phone numbers (http://www.cranstonri.com/generalpage.php?page=66) and if you click on “contact this Department” (http://www.cranstonri.com/contact.php?department=22) there is no contact information. Once on the police site, there isn’t a clear option for either filing a public safety report or reporting a stolen bike. Some links lead to a national (private?) service on reporting tips or seeing crime reports. “Forms” (http://cranstonpoliceri.com/Forms/) lacks a clear option. Using the police site’s search leads to a state list of forms (http://www.dps.ri.gov/usefulformsdocs/), none of which apply. Overall, you can request information about reports by downloading and printing pdfs. Actually reporting is a challenge. Reporting your cell phone’s been stolen seems to be a big priority for the site. Public Safety contact information (phone and email) is listed, but I can’t find the website within 30minutes. Also, it wasn’t listed in the main list of directories; you needed to find the directory. View Submission

30 http://www.cranstonri.com/pdf/Building%20Permit%20Long.pdf When I was searching for the permit application, I came across to this on the homepage "Please contact The Department of Inspections for information regarding work exempt from a permit as defined in The Rhode Island State Building Code" I believe It should have a link to make it easier to find the application View Submission
Start a legal business   40 http://www.cranstonri.com/generalpage.php?page=46 An internet search with various related key phrases helps find the right link. Figuring this out from out from the City page was more difficult: you needed to figure out the department, and if you did, there was only phone and maybe the email contacts for a couple of people. The physical address for the city hall was there, but not the specific location of these departments. The information was only in English. The state website was better (http://www.dbr.state.ri.us/): it had access to online forms as well as downloadable pdfs (I am unsure if this was just the state documentation). This site was also useful: http://www.cityapplications.com/business-licenses/RI-Rhode-Island/biz-Cranston.html Propose Revisions
