Cape Wide News was created in 1998 by Provincetown native Tim Caldwell to provide public-safety, spot-news coverage on Cape Cod. This includes the negatives–crimes, crashes and fires–but also positive events such as department promotions and retirements, charity functions and any other activities involving police and fire departments and associated agencies.
We welcome photos from our readers.
