Commission Sets Safety & Efficiency As High Priorities

The importance of safety and building on the success of the methadone program and the intelligence-led policing model are just a few of the priorities of the Saint John Police Commission.

6 members of the board including Mayor Mel Norton and Chair Chris Waldschutz participating in a brain-storming session to help identify the board's future focus.

Board chair Chris Waldschutz says their strength is providing strong and sound advice to the City police force.

He says the huge objective is to efficiently provide a safe community where people are safe and feel safe.

There was discussion about how to involve members of the public that are itching to help and one area might be through community policing.
