Norton Rides Along With Cops For A Night

Just call him Officer Greg.

Common Councillor Greg Norton joined members of the Saint John Police Department for a ride-along Friday night to get a sense of what officers have to deal with on a daily basis. Norton tells CHSJ News it's a challenge to get enough officers to cover the calls for service that come in--and it often takes more than one officer to deal with things like domestic disputes or potentially dangerous situations.

Norton says the ride-along was definitely an eye-opener for him as council enters its budget deliberations--and also for him as a member of the Board of Police Commissioners.
