The child’s safety should have come first
It was reported on the TV6 News and the Express (October 29) that a police wrecker made off with a child inside an illegally parked vehicle. Passers-by, on noticing the child, had to intervene to ensure his safety. I would like the police public information officer to answer the following questions:
1. Why, on being made aware of the little boy’s presence did the police officer leave him unattended in the moving vehicle (as it was reported that the child opened the car door and jumped from the vehicle)?
2. Why didn’t the police officer return to the location where the car was parked and attempt to locate the parent of the child?
3. Why did the police officer leave the child with a stranger?
One would assume that the officer’s priority would undoubtedly be the safety of the child and not to make off with an illegally parked vehicle.
