Letter: Thanks for standing up for New Westminster police force

The New Westminster Police Department deserves the support of residents and all three levels of government, this writer says.


Re: Speak up now to support New West police

I just wanted to say thank you to Bill Davis for his excellent and very compelling letter about citizens standing up for a strong police force and letting our politicians know how important the men and women in blue are to our to our communities.

With so much violent crime across the country these days, it seems like nary a day goes by when we don't hear about police officers having to act, and often having to make split-second life-and-death decisions to keep us and themselves safe.

Here in New Westminster we have an excellent police service, and these brave men and women need the support of not only the citizens of New Westminster, but of all three levels of government as well.
