Good cop or bad cop?

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

I WOULD like to ex­press my con­cern re­gard­ing a mi­nor traf­fic in­fringe­ment ticket I re­ceived on Sun­day in Craiglie.

The ticket I ac­cept and will pay with­out hes­i­ta­tion, but the man­ner in which it was served was in­ap­pro­pri­ate.

The of­fi­cer was ar­ro­gant, dis­re­spect­ful and made a com­ment that was un­called for.

Hav­ing been a po­lice of­fi­cer I know how of­fi­cers should treat the pub­lic.

In a small town like Port Dou­glas where po­lice need com­mu­nity sup­port and on oc­ca­sion may need us to as­sist them in their du­ties it is im­per­a­tive to have a good re­poire.

I am sure the ma­jor­ity of po­lice in the area are friendly and fair in their du­ties but it only takes one to give law en­force­ment a bad name. Heath Mel­ton Port Dou­glas
