To the editor,

After hearing what I consider to be an irresponsible minimization of the risks associated with visiting the Common, expressed by senior police officers after yet another poor soul was attacked, my opinion of Halifax Regional Police dropped pretty low. However, I've been so impressed by the high level of service I recently received from city police I felt compelled to pay them a compliment. In one week a manic shopper tried to mow down my husband and I in a parking lot, and I had to file a noise complaint against an over-eager construction worker who broke out the heavy machinery before 7am. I was treated with tremendous courtesy and efficiency by the dispatchers and constables who received my calls. They handled my complaints seriously and treated me with respect. If there were more of these officers patrolling the streets and parks of this city, I'm confident we would all feel safer and more secure.
