NotMyKid: Civilians inform their communities (video, reports, etc.), make laws, sit on juries - but according to you, only police understand. Your rebuttal is unresponsive to the concerns presented. So glad you're gone from PSD, many people see your responses and are thankful your kind of attitude is gone.

Look frank...

I am not saying you are completely wrong.

What i should have Said is... Ok... Patrol properly... Fine.

What on gods green earth do you want them to do if they come across criminality?

Do you not understand that PSD has been watered down to a security outfit? Why should a psd office attempt to get involved with any criminal entity if their bosses or community do nit support them.

Serious question.

Their oath that they took has been squashed for them.

NotMyKid: Never prescribed any specific order, only said the patrols need to be complete, which they're not.

When a PSD officer encounters a potential crime, he/she uses their judgement to determine what's next: arrest, summons, warning, talking to, shooing away, and so on.

Unlike the Guerra years, there are no longer promotions based upon arrests, which is a Good Thing because (as we've seen) it causes many gratuitous arrests, which has a significant negative impact on people's lives.

McManus calls his approach "community policing", there seems to be varying understandings of that term. What it seems to me is: a focus upon problem-solving techniques, including deeper ties with the community.

Or said differently, if you can improve the quality of life (noise, etc.), that's a main goal ... and arresting people is NOT the main goal.

Of course, people will need to be arrested for various reasons. I don't see PSD prohibited from making arrests. And with arrest counts no longer criteria for being promoted, then arrest (or not) is just one of the tools that the PSD officer uses in his/her judgement to solve the problem at hand.

It seems to be working in the past 12 months. Of course, there will never be perfection, but in comparing OSD in the year 2012 with the year 2014, I say there is a world of difference.

Note: Of course I have my compliments and criticisms elsewhere in PSD, but things look reasonable in this area of their service. And, if I've missed some areas of the Island that need attention, well then they deserve more PSD attention.

Feedback from the community with respect to satisfaction or dissatisfaction with PSD tactics, performance over the past 12 months could be assessed by means of a poll or questionnaire. If the WIRE wanted to do something useful, it could include a poll on the subject in the paper, in the form of a card that could be mailed back for free (Business Reply Mail) or direct folks to the same poll on its website, and then run a story with the results. Other than the few who comment on the subject on the blog, there is no way of knowing what the majority of residents think about security on RI. They may feel perfectly safe - or they may feel the island or their building is not that safe. There is no way of knowing - unless a survey is conducted.
