Public must follow up on police complaints

I read the paper every week, and I am concerned with the number of calls to the RCMP, from shoplifting to reckless driving.

Dear Editor:

I read the paper every week, and I am concerned with the number of calls to the RCMP, from shoplifting to reckless driving.

I wonder why we bother placing these calls, if the public is unwilling to follow through with their complaints. How are we ever going to stop these things from happening if there is no follow through?

My husband and I have six children. If while raising our children, there were no consequences for bad behaviour, what kind of people would they become as adults?

If the public does not take a stand and make statements and/or go to court, don’t bother calling the police.

Maybe if charges were laid and followed through, we wouldn’t have repeat offences, such as the ATV in Big Valley driving in town.

Denise Johnston,

Stettler
