Parksville police to set plan for 2012

Staff Sergeant doesn't see any major change in focus for this year

Oceanside RCMP Staff Sergeant Brian Hunter is getting ready to sit down with community groups to see where local policing can be tweaked in 2012.

“I don’t foresee any drastic change in our detachment,” Hunter said. “However, in January and February we will meet with officials and community groups to help develop a strategic plan for the coming year.”

He said he is very open to suggestions, but added he doubts the focus will shift.

“I don’t see the priorities changing from where they are now, dealing with drugs, youth, safe roads, driving and of course mischief and property crimes in the community,” Hunter said. “Those are the priorities we have right now and I don’t see that changing. However, we will roll up our sleeves in the new year and get to work meeting with the community.”
