Valley of Peace checkpoints

Dear Sir,

I must commend a unit of officers that patrolled and carried, perhaps planned, but at the same time improvised, checkpoints in Valley of Peace village on the evening of Friday, September 26th, 2014.

Spot checks and questioning were conducted to questionable individuals within a framework of respect (I would not like to think that the operation was conducted in such a professional manner because witnesses were there.)

It is actions like these that make the  transgressors accept their fault and acknowledge their guilt, as well as develop their respect for police officers. This also deepens the relationship and perception that the community has for the police.

In good faith,I hope that professionalism among the police officers during these interventions prevail. Law abiding citizens cannot and do not oppose police intervention, once it is done within a framework of respect.

Yours respectfully,

H. FLores ( Mr.)
