Comment on ‘Profiteering’ industry must act on grog harm: Police Association by Chris2.

Long winded contemplations, blame focus, finger pointing and solutions mostly unattainable within a time frame that will see the town come to its lowest point are nothing more than a joke.
Reality is that cops at the grog shops work. Proactive policing at its best.
Since when did the members decide when and where they will attend?
No doubt the beats are irritating and less than stimulating but remember every police officer takes an oath to serve and if the beat is your shift of the day get on with it – it’s what the majority of citizens of this town want.
So as many have said, Gunner and Co listen to the voice of the people.
