@Mark E

Ditto. Thank you for your dedicated service.


It is not the fault of the Police that they have to chronically arrest the same people - it is the fault of our Judicial system. To the Police it is frustrating and more work to keep arresting people that are released on their own reconnaissance.

Next time someone is threatening your well being, do us all a favour and don't dial 911 if you think that the Police don't do their job. Your neighbour will do you the favour of calling the Coroner!

Sounds good.

But why the special notice in the media?

People reach milestone's with other companies all the time. Is there a page for the nurses who reach so many years of service, or the bus driver's?

Like other workers in this province... all police should receive their appreciation notice every second week in the form of their pay check! Need more recognition become a movie star.

Last is, I hope this isn't going to cost the taxpayers any extra?
