During Monday’s council meeting, Police Services Board Chair Don Sherritt released results of a community policing survey. Out of 658 respondents, almost 21 percent said RIDE programs should remain a local policing priority, followed closely by the priority of reducing domestic violence and crime.
In terms of programming, 85 percent of survey respondents felt it was important to target impaired driving, seatbelt use, aggressive and distracted driving. A close second was promoting awareness of elder abuse, with drug awareness in school rounding out the top three. Visit Feb 8 agenda pkg for all the results.
