City cops lapsing
I have been reading about the complaints by Municipal police officers about not receiving the $1,000 increase which has also been given to SRP officers and I can understand why they were left out.
We do not see municipal officers at any time of day or night. All the police work that we know about is done by officers of the Belmont Police Station. Crime is investigated by the CID.
Since they are doing nothing except spending the day in their police station, it seems odd that Municipal police officers are asking for an increase.
Let them patrol the streets and arrest all those chain snatchers and pick-pockets. Let them come by the hospital and help us with traffic. Let them go to the Central Market and patrol. But for goodness sake, let them do some work before giving them an increase.
